Node Types

The Sine emits values from 0 to 10 that vary at about one hertz. The output is smallest when the pointer points down, and largest at the reverse. Possible extensions would be outputing both sine and cosine, and taking an input as a speed control.

The similar Knob looks the same as Sine but runs twenty times slower.

The Lamp receptor tracks the most available signal and lights appropriately. The lamp is never completely off except when unitiialized.

The Digit receptor displays the most available signal as a decimal digit. It subtracts the displayed digit value from the input average to produce a residue in the range of zero up to but not including one. Digit emits the residue times ten on a least used channel. This allows Digits to cascade offering a multi-digit precision decimal readout. Typically the Digit closest to the emitter is the most significant digit.

The Plot receptor shows the sixteen most recently received input values on the most available channel. The bars only advance whe new data is successfuly received so the jerkyness of the display is an indication of activity level.

The promiscious Busy observer displays the presence of activity on all sixteen channels. Unlike Plot, Busy advances it's record smoothly so that periods of inactivity appear as gaps.
