Been mostly working on projects that are under wraps, but I think i'm onto something pretty cool using augmented reality. I've decided to take the bokeh_gl stuff I've been workin on and turn it into a full fledged Nuke node and I'm excited to make the conversion of it into something immediately usefull.
A week or so ago I got a chance to look into processing, a java library that pretty much overlay's on top of OpenGL that simplifies the callbacks for use in art etc. I modified someone elses piece to play around with some animation, and shaders that are synced to beats in music or an input stream. Their piece also used a kinect for data input to interact with the display. Really cool to get an opportunity to play around with fun graphics tools!
I also got a lesson in what life is like at 80... :P. In college I realized early on that if I was going to be a coder and keep a healthy body without aches I needed to excersize regularly and joined crew to get that going. This was partly because I was suffering from a lot of back pain. This summer due to being put out by a concussion, then a knee injury, my back started to hurt again, and the back pain got so bad that i couldn't excersize anymore, it was an endless cycle of bad. Long story short it was overcome by hot water, sleeping on the floor, replacing a chair with a excersize ball and extremely painful excersize getting done anyway. Hopefully this comes in handy to a coder reading this with back problems, :)
Well, that was a lengthy post, if your still reading, I'd suggest a beer, if it's late, nah I'd still suggest a beer.
