P3 just launched a little online Holiday toy. The Jingle Generator! You basically just use your keyboard or mouse, and hit the keys to generate sounds. The toy will record your jingle, and from there you can play it back, post it on Twitter or Facebook, or send it to a friend’s email. Huge Thanks to P3 for letting me be a part of the project. I was lead developer for the entire project.
Today Cameron Calder and I launched Haunted Queens Club. It’s an interactive music video for the song “Are we? Will we?” by Queens Club, a local Kansas City band. Made using Papervision3D. I was the only developer on the entire project! Lots of hard work was put into it, so let me know what you think!
Just came across this bad ass AS3 toolkit called FLARToolKit.
“FLARToolkit will detect the marker from an input image and calculate the camera position in the three dimension space” = Augmented Reality!
To sum it up, it allows you to make 3D computer generated objects appear like they are a part of reality.
I originally found out about this technology on the site Boffswana.com. So I did some research, and figured out how to make my own!
To see the 3D model you will need a webcam, and you will need to either print this symbol, or display it on your phone, or on a separate monitor.
Also check out GE’s smartgrid for a better example of this technology.
Doing a bit more with the AS3 Box2D library. I’ve created a virtual Barrel Of Monkeys! Spawn more Monkeys by clicking the Barrel.
Challenge: Create a bridge of Monkeys connection the two orange balls.
I have yet to accomplish this, but I had fun trying. I managed to create a Monkey bridge. Just takes time and patience.
Created a quick “Water” test piece using the AS3 Box2D Library. Start by turning on the Water Flow. Turn on/off the Blur Filter for added effect. Keep it off for better performance, but it looks more like water with it turned on. You can also drop a ball and throw it around with the mouse.
