Old list of events

December 4th, Stammtisch #80

(22 attendees online at least)

Lead dev of Ossia Score and libossia. Wants to talk about languages. He also created libmapper: library for connecting things (languages, sensors)
webassembly: browser technology, allows you to compile programs written in C++, C and others and run it in the browser, likely fast (instead of the typical browser language which is JavaScript).
libossia includes shaders, Faust-based audio generation.

J-M wonders if WebAssembly would make sense as glue language to connect creative coding languages, frameworks, platforms, etc?

Took a photo of Ella (the cat), loaded it into Processing and used the brightness as an elevation map, finally 3d printed it. That was a first proof of concept and it worked well enough.

Version 1.3.0 (The ZIPpy serving) / Nov 13, 2020

Inspired by the work of Mohit Bhoite a “perpetual motion machine” but got sidetracked in many side-rabbit-holes. One was to create one of those cats (maneki neko) inviting you to enter a store, built with an ATtiny microcontroller. It has a capacitor to continue operating after the sunset.

He’s been using to host his web experiments.
One of them is a virtual gallery:
The “paintings” hanging in the walls of the gallery are actually hydra programs running, not just images or videos.

Another of his creations:

One more: a wiki style page:


=== break ===


He has a fork of Hydra, websockets too to share shaders with a C++ application (VideoDrome) which he also wrote.
Runs on mobile with the Ionic React framework.
He uses Syphon (mac) / Spout (win) to share gpu textures between programs.


Has worked in AR/VR before, then been creating filters using Spark AR
modeled golden body parts in Blender
screaming glsl filter, interlacing and glitch effect

He’s been drawing lots of birdies in different scenes. On his Twitter:

Created a web based interactive 3D space in glitch: The space is like a zoo with creatures that behave in different ways. The creatures are created based on a name given by the users. He doesn’t show the name in the space because it would break the feel of it.

Abe created a tweet with p5js + shaders for the Madrid event (find #tinycodein Twitter). It was veery hard to make it fit.

Kazik’s last second announcement:

Shows progress in his code universe. May the Forth be with you.
