Channels – Take 2

We presented “Channels” to our classes and, for the most part, it was successful. One of the flex sensors broke in the process, so we have to fix it for the Winter Show. Also, there are some coding issues we need to fix, as well. Here’s video of our installation: To see it working was, […]

Field Of Seems

APP (choose width): 1280px | 1920px APPLET: 1280px | 1920px CODE: 1280px | 1920px Baseball is a game of tradition. So, a few years ago, when people tried to change the game using statistics, a culture war was ignited. On one side, there were the traditionalists — the people who played the game by feel. […]

ICM Final Proposal: “Your Pitch”

ICM Final Proposal: “Your Pitch”

What is it? A program that will show you every single pitch from Major League Baseball, as if the user is the catcher. This uses Pitch f/x data from the league, which is gathered using hundreds of cameras at each ballpark. It measures the speed, location and break of every pitch, and an algorithm calculates […]

Mariano Rivera

Mariano Rivera

I am using a local file of Pitch f/x data, which shows the exact location and break of every pitch in Major League Baseball. This is the pitch sequence of Mariano Rivera in Game 6 last season, when the Yankees won the World Series. This diagrams the pitch location and the strike zone (blue), and […]

Flying: ICM Midterm

Flying: ICM Midterm

UPDATE: Lagging issue has been fixed with the reduction of the camera caption size. (zip link) — I wanted to create an application that allows us to feel as if we are flying — using our physical bodies. And I wanted to allow the user to perform a “swimming” motion to thrust them forward in […]

Arrays: Space Birdies

Arrays: Space Birdies

For this week’s arrays assignment, I attempted to create an ecosystem with these yellow “birds” and blue “dogs.” That failed, so I allowed for some human intervention — a.k.a. shooting lasers to kill/grow the two species. (link)

Objects-oriented programming

Objects-oriented programming

I took last week’s program and re-did it using object-oriented programming. (link) I am unsure of how to make different objects interact; right now, I’m just re-establishing a set of x and y variables — and their movements — in each object. There must be a better way…

Squish Him

Squish Him

For this, Processing assignment, I created a game. (link)

All Robots Go To Heaven

All Robots Go To Heaven

For our second ICM project, Kody and I made an interactive comic strip. (Comic) (The Java applet is a bit jumpy in Google Chrome.)
