Box2d Flash Alchemy Port + World Construction Kit

This looks really good and really fast.

World Construction Kit is is a toolset / framework for rapidly developing physics based games / websites within the Flash IDE. WCK allows you to layout your 2d worlds / game levels entirely within Flash and have them hook into the physics simulation without writing any code. Documentation located on the GitHub wiki page..”

Sideroller is a nice game in development using it, the whole game is on a wheel.

Fluffy Mc Cloud

Nice short animation with a great style merging live action with hand drawn animation.

A short film about man’s misunderstanding and mixed relationship with mother nature (barf!)..

This is my graduate film from IADT National Film School.. Its a bit of a mix of stop-motion, live action and hand drawn animation, shot in my attic on a Cannon EOS 5D, Cannon 450D and a 7D too (basically any camera i could borrow from friends and siblings). i hope you like it!

ps. if anyone that reads this is interested in employing/ interning me, i’m currently living and looking for work in NYC! contact me: funnegan@gmail.com

Thanks.

Multitouch DJing

Love this DIY floating multitouch screen and the whole multitouch djing but i think he needs some headphones.

Tenori-On, ToneMatrix and JavaScript Tenorion

Wonderful music making devices!

It all started with the Yamaha Tenori-On LED Performance Instrument:



Then  Andre Michelle created the ToneMatrix in Flash

And now JavaScript Tenorion using HTML 5 Canvas and the Sion AS3 library:

** Warning: Can be CPU intensive. Safari / Chrome for best results. If you do not have a fast CPU, use less effects in the checkbox options.

This is a nice implementation as you have control over the instrument and effects

Some Nice Demos

Hakim El Hattab has created some nice demos, all very interactive

Mind Controll Hardware

You must have seen one of the mind control games that were released last year…

If you missed them here are the 2 big ones:

Uncle Milton Star Wars Force Trainer: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Uncle-Milton-Star-Force-Trainer/dp/B001UZHASY

And Mindflex Game : http://mindflexgames.com/ http://www.amazon.co.uk/P2639-Mattel-Mindflex-Game/dp/B001UEUHCG

Now people are starting to create their own system…

This post details how to hack up the Mindflex game with an Arduino to roll your own: http://ericmika.com/itp/brain-hack

And  Emotiv EPOC developer headset is an expensive but probably a more receptive and polished looking alternative

“Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv has developed a revolutionary new personal interface for human computer interaction.  The Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset.  It uses a set of sensors to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect player thoughts, feelings and expressions and connects wirelessly to most PCs.”

Basically this headset and the SDK Emotiv provide we can turn brain signals into controls/input for virtually any software, game, website, robot or anything controlled by a computer or electronics.

I’m not a neuroscientist but I would imagine that you could only do very basic things with this technology.

I can’t wait to see all the different experiences people come up with.
