I indented the code by four spaces, as I thought you were using Markdown, but it looked terrible. Did you fix it up? If so, thanks!

Also, I like the seasonal colours in the diagram. 🙂

Yep, I fixed it up, no worries. =) You can just surround code with <pre><code> … </code></pre>.

The one on the left is just counting in binary. Is the one on the right a Gray code?

Right you are!

I made something pretty using Gray code:

Cool! Can you explain how you made it?

Yes.

For each pixel, put its x,y coordinates in Gray code; deal out the bits to the color-channels, in one of a large number of possible ways; convert the result from Gray code. Gray code is not essential to the concept, but makes it prettier.

Thus for example the (Gray) coordinates’ bits might be

X = G7 B7 R6 G5 B5 R4 G3 B3 R2 G1 B1 R0

Y = R7 G6 B6 R5 G4 B4 R3 G2 B2 R1 G0 B0

or in other words the (Gray) color bits are

R = Y11 X9 Y8 X6 Y5 X3 Y2 X0

G = X11 Y10 X8 Y7 X5 Y4 X2 Y1

B = X10 Y9 X7 Y6 X4 Y3 X1 Y0

(I forgot that I had already posted bigger versions on G+.)

Ah, I see. Neat!
