SoundWall Kinect

SoundWall is an open source digital drum machine which can be controlled using the Xbox Kinect SDK for Windows using hand motions and voice commands.




3D Maze

This was part of an assignment for my CS215 class. It involved coding a maze that uses recursion to randomly generate the maze. For extra credit I went nuts and added DirectX support so I could have the whole thing drawn in 3D.  

Linear Algebra applied to 3D Graphics

I made this video as part of a presentation I gave for extra credit in my linear algebra class. It is just showing how matrices are applied in computer graphics.

Monster for my Maze Project

After some play testing, friends told me they couldn’t tell which was the player and which was the monster, so I decided to make this to clear up any confusion.

Virtual High School

The virtual high school or Windsor High school map was a project I did in my senior year for school. (2005) My goal was to create the whole school in a 3d environment which could be explored in the Half-Life 2 game engine. I figured the project would take between 80 and 100 hours. It ended up taking over 200 hours. This was a great learning experience for me. While it did end up taking me so long to do it, I enjoyed almost every minute of it.

Virtual High School Install Guide

First you need Steam. http://www.steampowered.com Then you need to either buy a copy of Half-Life 2 or The Orange Box to run the mod. This can be picked up retail for between 20 and 50 dollars. It can also be purchased directly from steam. To install copy the “Virtual High School” folder (copy the folder that is in the same folder as the readme.txt file. Don’t copy the dated folder.) to your SourceMods folder in your steam directory.

Custom computer chassis concept

This was a model I had to create for work. I had to change the color schemes and decals so our customer at my job could have a good visualization of what they were going to get.

Table

This was a simulation I did to test out HDR.

dm_lightsabers

I made this map because I found out a funny way to make a lightsabers. This is still a beta and has a few glitches but please give me your input on what you think of the map, and any ideas to go with it. I hope you enjoy this map. I know my friends and I did.
