Nintendo Colour Converter


Hacked together a processing sketch this afternoon that converts an image or a live video stream from a webcam into the lovely Nintendo Entertainment System colour palette.

The code horizontally and vertically samples every n number of pixels of the video stream or image, and picks the closest available colour from the NES palette. The sample resolution can be set by the user. I’ll post up the source code later this evening when it’s tidied up and commented.

Many thanks to the NES Hacker Wiki for publishing the RGB values of the NES colour palette on their site.
