The following is a list of personal projects I’ve worked on during my spare time. Most of them are just prototypes I’ve made to learn more about a new technology. But some of them were created for personal needs.
I hope you find them useful.
Bibbuzz is an online collection of Bibles. The site is formatted specifically to be viewed using mobile devices.
At the moment Bibbuzz is only useful for reading. But in future updates I would like to add functionality to search, bookmark, comment on, compare different versions of Bibles, etc.
The original reason for creating Bibbuzz was that I needed an Afrikaans Bible on my Android phone. But because of legal reasons, the Afrikaans version had to be removed (If anyone from the Bible Society of South Africa is reading this, please grant me a licence ).
Coincrate is an online application that enables video gamers to share their love of video games with the world.
At the moment Coincrate only lets you make lists of video games and then share these lists, but I have bigger and better things planned for it in the future.
The name comes from the fact that coins and crates are historically two items most found in video games. The name is also a reference to the coin boxes in Super Mario.
The logo was inspired by a coin, a crate and Portal’s Companion Cube (which can also been seen as a crate, I guess).
Hope you enjoy. And be sure to check it out regularly. Like I’ve said, I have a lot of changes in mind!
Random Other Stuff
These are some proof-of-concept projects and demos I’ve created.
HTML5 Canvas Demos – Steering Behaviours
I have created some steering behaviour demos on an HTML 5 canvas. The demos can be found here.
These demos are based on the awesome Java steering demos by Craig Reynolds. At the moment I’ve only implemented a small number of the algorithms on his site, but hopefully this will change in the future.
The algorithms are a mix between the following two sources:
- Steering Behaviors For Autonomous Characters
By Craig Reynolds
- Artificial Intelligence for Games
By Ian Millington
The source is available under the BSD 2-Clause License and can be downloaded from a Mercurial repository on Bitbucket.
Note: It doesn’t seem to be working in IE at the moment.
