I'd say it would have to be integrated from the start, due to the translations,
etc that are clock dependent.

What would the second media do?  Just produce a different color, and a third
color when all 3 overlap?  I'll give it a go - or you could just change my code
to make one media cylinder 100% red, and 50% green, and another media cylinder
50% green and 100% blue.  Then have them move in opposite directions, or easier
- just rotate one y*90.

It's more of a sporting activity referring to hitting the intended area.
Don't rush - take your time.  That makes things smooth.  The smoother it is, the
faster it will be when you speed it up.

You can be the _fastest_ person to miss the target 1000 times.... no score.

I have mountains of scribble paper, and sometimes use the 3 sides of a cardboard
box (x, y, z)

Unless you beat me to it.  :P
