Colorize Layer

3D Modifier - Colorize geometry vertices with a 2D Generator

Use a map (can be a Shared Element too). To color each vertex based on it's UV. To use this modifier over a particle set, either emit particles from a geometry or use a UV Mapping. As you'll see on the example below, that is what mean "per vertex color". On a low subdivided plane (10x10) you'll get something like that :

On a medium subdivided plane (64x64), you'll get something like that :

This modifier is so particularly effective over a particles system. You can use a Video Input as map to colorize your particles with what comes out of your webcam.

You can also try to combine it with Layer Intensity or Normal Map Layer + Optical Flow to a maximum funky fresh effect to the over top.
Here is a tutorial example using this modifier :
