Started in 2008 a friend and I was thinking about an idea of a story.
We though about a parallel universe similar to ours, that was made of
an Test at Cern, you know the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
We started to model a whole dimension around this idea with a kind of physics,
geological properties etc. After then we started to write a story line about it.
But currently we are stuck in a phase were we have no toolings. For planing and
writing this story. So this project is currently on hold until we wrote our
Next sword build with same material as "Cuttles" but more finer.
It will get a touch sensor in the back of the sword,
and some led's into the blade. It has a 3d printed handle
and is one of the hardest projects, I've ever made.
Started in 2012 a friend an me wanted to program a little game engine.
Just cause.... we could >__<, everyone was taking parts of it.
We stopped this project after a while as I experienced Unity 3d and he lost
motivation for it. Anyway I learned much about performance in Java
and the Shader Language from OpenGL. I completely focused on
the dynamic correct light in this game.
Today I would rewrite most of this code, cause it smells very bad.
The youth did it :).
Normally I wouldn't make it as an part of my portfolio, but there is this little reason.
It was my dream for more then 6 years to travel there.
I did everything to realize this dream and it was more then awesome.
I love this country and the peoples and the mindset so much that I want to live there.
And the next big dream is to do everything to live there.
Otherwise I would miss a big life goal. Anyway here are some impressions of it.
A little story to that:
As I started to learn programming, I needed some project todo - learning by doing -
so I was looking for an project that could handle every aspect I was knowing of programming.
I started to implement Pong in every language I learn.
Started with Visual Basic (moved Buttons and Radio boxes), over C++ (with Irrlicht 3d framework),
on an Microprocessor with oscilloscope as display etc.
Pong handles Input, Output, animations, file access to the assets and
Simple math logic. Everything to learn a new language. And this version on an Arduino
needed 2,5h complete from scratch. With Arduino a display module (SSD1331) and sound (Beeper) and input via joystick.
