A protocomputational architecture is presented that implements the ancient reaction-diffusion model as a microelectronic hardware. A digital medium is selected for the physical mapping of the protoarchitecture as a way to benefit from reliable advanced integrated circuits fabrication technologies. The extraction of dense motion vector fields from textureless objects in a video sequence is selected as a realistic application. Real-time video processing results at 30 fps are achieved using an
