ciUI: A User Interface Block for Cinder

July 5, 2012

After hearing Andrew Bell’s (@drawnline) awesome talk about feeding babies with creative code at Eyeo 2012 and talking to Alex Biem (@tangibleint) I was inspired to port ofxUI (made for Openframeworks) to Cinder. If you aren’t familiar with ofxUI, check it out here. ofxUI contains many widgets and layout methods to help place those widgets so to make user interfaces that are more aesthetically appealing, useable, clean, and minimal.

Magneto: An Exploration of Lorentz Force

June 28, 2011

The images in this post were generated by a real-time particle simulation of 5000 charged particles interacting with magnetic fields. This fundamental theory/law is used to derive their motion is based on the Lorentz Law in Fields and Waves. In physics Lorentz Force defines how a charged particle (point charge) is affected by an electromagnetic field.

EMERGENT

February 26, 2010

“EMERGENT” was created using a particle system that was given basic rules of behavior, this is very similar to swarm algorithms using in architecture to create 3D forms.

Organic SuperShapes

January 31, 2010

Recently, I have been exploring SuperShapes, which are organic shapes that are rendered by evaluating the superformula with different parameters. This formula creates some beautiful and very organic shapes that can be used in other graphics to make a dynamic graphic composition (either interactive or static). Doing this in Matlab or Mathematica is interesting, but I wanted to make something a little more interactive, minimal and fun to play with so I designed a application that can be used to create these shapes and render an image of them at a super high resolution.
