Contemplating the neon lights in the ceiling panels, I allowed them to send me into a hypnotic state.
This is so cool! I can't wait to show this to my professor!
Nicely Done! Every time I see one of your pens I feel woefully inadequate. Where in the world do you learn to code these things? haha
@ge1doot have you seen FROST? They do something similar but they figured out how to move the positioning logic to the GPU. I recommend checking out gpu-boids
@clindsey Thanks for the links. I'm still slowly learning the basics of WebGL. I'm afraid the GPGPU and pure GLSL coding is not for now ;-)
But I'm planning to rewrite the WebGL part of this pen again, using GL_POINTS draw calls instead of the current "sprites" method it uses... Using a texture, 2 triangles and 6 vertices for each particle is probably not the best I could do.
Voila. Change done. No triangles/textures anymore. Dots are drawn in the shaders (logically using "dot" product, he he). Old version in the forks.
you can make youtube channel
I really like your pens.
