A new version of Camera3D has been released!
Version 1.2 supports 360 videos. Here is an example:
In addition, I made some performance improvements using new tools found in Java 1.8. Processing 2.x is no longer supported.
More information available on the Camera-3D Camera-3D project page.
This is the 3D animation I made for my holiday cards. View this with red-cyan 3D Glasses (red on the left, cyan on the right).
Also have a look at last year's animation.
This past week I spent much of my time writing the documentation for my latest project, Camera-3D. This is an open source library for Processing. It will enable artists and creative technologists to transform their sketches into 3D anaglyphs and experiment with other 3D effects.
Once I finish the examples this will be ready to go live. I am so excited!
This week I created a presentation for my research paper on Algorithmic Trading in the Iowa Electronic Markets. I shared it with researchers studying prediction markets at Microsoft Research Labs.
The people there were very smart and interested in what I had to say. They may very well have the largest collection of people studying prediction markets anywhere in the world. It's a somewhat obscure field, as most researchers are interested in either theoretical market models or more developed financial markets. It's a shame because there is a lot to learn from prediction markets, which sit right between the two.
The presentation itself is made with the reveal.js presentation framework. I made it in Jupyter, which now has the ability to output working presentations in reveal. I had a lot of fun learning about Jupyter and building a presentation in a notebook. The presentation workflow was so much better than anything I have experienced before, and I can't image ever using anything else again.
