Rolling Shutter Demo

I have programmed a Javascript Demo which displays the picture from a computer's webcam, but distorted in time.

It demonstrates the rolling shutter effect which affects some digital cameras when imaging fast moving scenes. However in the demo the effect is over 50 times stronger.

If you're using Firefox or Chrome and have a webcam, then Try it yourself!
