OpenProcessing

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

I’ve been learning Processing on and off for a while now but were struggling to figure out what to create with it.  Then I discovered OpenProcessing a site that enables people to easily share their sketches and download others, which is helping me move away from tutorials and into something new.  What better way to share my experiments than to upload them back to OP.  The first of which is this little interactive sketch that draws randomly sized rectangles based on the position of the mouse.

Pentominoes in Ask Magazine

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

I was delighted when Ask Magazine showed an interest in my Pentominoes game and asked if it could be included in their website to accompany an article in the September issue about Archimedes, who amongst other things created the mathematical puzzle Ostomachion.  The puzzle consists of 14 pieces dissected from a square that can then be rearranged to form a wide variety of other shapes and figures.   Naturally I was intrigued and you can now play the puzzle on their site here.
