I tinkered a little more with this and added a setting for how many
points should be scanned each scan. That fewer scanned points made
morphic more responsive but jumpier movement of the ellipse. Next change
will be to just return x and y values so any object can be hooked up to
Future enhancement is:
- several colors scanned for, that would enable more advanced input
like one for mouse click simulation and one for movement.
-putting scanning in a primitive would really speed up everything
and make even more stuff possible, like gestures, sign language ? etc.
