Hi guys and gals, Im trying to write a program in java thats like the falling matrix code and convert webcam images into the matrix code, something like this (here's the link, Its the 1st two pics on the left and right: http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images/view?back=h...no=44&tt=8,037&ei=UTF -8). But since Im new to java, Im truely having a difficult time. Im just lookn for a push in the right direction if anyone can help. THANX!

I have a theory that my webcam has to pick up IR or be a light sensitive cam, so I can get the brighter and darker shades of green. I may have to convert the image to black and white format then to the matrix code. But right now it's just theory.
