uses the words as colored stamps to draw live video.

The installation is suprizingly simple and uses any

This web Applet requires a camera (USB webcam, camcorder, etc.) and
Quicktime (preinstalled on Macs, available online free for Windows, Linux, etc.)
For shows, I highly recommend a stand-alone full-screen version,
