We started to experiment with moving the particles on the GPU side. Firstly, we wanted to move the particles somehow. After some research and previous experience we decided to try to make a moving star field/vortex simulation.
We figured that we could simulate it depending on the elapsed time by using modulus and sinus operations. The mathematical operations are "static" as such, they will loop forever. We also experimented with user input by sending touch data and moving the system accordingly.
Watch videos of the simulation below.
