|A Time Gestalt
Principle Example: Common fate
|Click inside the random figure below. Do you see any pattern? Those things that move together are seen as being together.
<mouse click> start/stop figure animation
<space> randomizes display
'<' or '>' decreases/increases density
Changing figure properties
'R' toggles figure rotation
'T' toggles figure translation
'S' toggles figure between square and circle
Changing filler properties
'D' changes dot (background filler) shape
'C' changes dot (background filler) color
'F' toggles filling of dots
- Background doesn't rotate for square. Looks goofy.
- Non-line dots don't actually rotate - they just revolve around
- Lines beginning in the shape but ending outside aren't clipped.
