So, I just finished up captions for Polyfy; I should be submitting an update sometime in the next week!

Which reminds me, I don’t think I actually announced that the app was available yet. You can download it on iTunes right now!

There is a bug on iPhone 4S and prior (exit button is off the screen), so if you have one, please hold off until the next update. But iPhone5+ is good to go!

*NINJA EDIT: A friend pointed out that how to access the options was not clear. Upon opening the app, double-tap to open/close the options window. Adding another item to the TODO list for the next update (^o^)

A dancing BMO animated GIF to celebrate the submission of Polyfy (formerly Super Polygonal Selfie) to the App Store; taken with the app, of course. Hopefully it gets approved! (fingers crossed)

"Beemo is camera!”

First animated GIF exported from Super Polygonal Selfie, uploaded from the tumblr app on my iPhone.

I’m singing “Robot Rock” by Daft Punk, in case anyone is wondering [^_^]

A sample set of pictures from Super Polygonal Selfie, showing off some of the functionality.

I personally find the thresholded background most appealing.

A live demo of Super Polygonal Selfie. I think I’m going to go for an App Store submission next week.

Also, pardon the plain background; I’m holed up in a co-working space in Kobe at the moment, so the atmosphere is a bit…office-y.

Sample pictures from my new project, codename “Super Polygonal Selfie”.

It is built with openFrameworks, and uses openCV for contour detection. The contours are then downsampled and drawn as polygons with the average color of all pixels inside the shape, on top of a Canny edge detection-derived image.

The next task is to improve shape detection and come up with an algorithm to generate more wild (primitive) polygons.

BITSMASH Studios

I just finished up the logo for my new company, BITSMASH Studios, last week. It is written in Processing, and runs in the browser using Processing.js.

The logo is mashup of a cellular automata simulation, in which colored cells are born or die based on their neighbors, and a simple elastic collision “explosion” that shoots out a ray of cells from the center of the cluster.

You can read more about it here.

The bit seeker enemy in Ate Bit, which seeks out bits for its personal consumption. It prefers to eat loose bits, but will come after you as long as you’re not looking.

One of my favorite enemies in the game thus far, implemented using only a simple finite state machine; there’s something to be said for doing more with less.
