As cool as bell-bottom pants according to Keith Peters! Which is pretty damn cool. And it can be really fiddly setting up the FLARToolkit, so I’ve finally released some of my AR code. Just in time for it to go out of fashion. 🙂 It uses the Alchemy branch of the FLARToolkit and includes everything […]
On Tuesday night I did a last minute ad hoc presentation to FlashBrighton to share the experiments I’ve done with the microphone capabilities of FlashPlayer 10.1. You should be able to see the recording at live.flashbrighton.org (if it’s not there, bear with us while we try to get it working). Click “media” to see the […]
Original Photo : PhotoCapy I’ve been playing with the Flash microphone input to record and playback multiple tracks. I thought it’d be really easy, but sadly it’s been really really tricky. The main problem is to do with knowing exactly when data from the microphone was recorded, particularly relative to when some audio was played! […]
(previously titled : Flash Player bug? for each..in loops) [UPDATE] Kudos and much thanks to Tim Knip who pointed out that it was in fact my mistake – there’s a stray semi-colon at the end of the line : for each(byteArray in soundSources); Which is of course ending the loop there and just running the […]
… is measured in samples. Not bytes or mils. So if you want to know how it relates to the ByteArray you’re working with, you need to multiply it by 4 (as each floating point sample requires 4 bytes). And if you want to convert it to mils, you need to divide by 44.1, the […]
… is measured in milliseconds. Why do I mention this? Because it seems to have been entirely omitted from the ActionScript live docs and it took me a while to figure it out. Maybe this post will save someone some time in the future. 🙂 [UPDATE] I just noticed that this is actually specified in […]
UPDATE – HTML 5 Canvas version now online During my session at the Flash Gaming Summit, I showed a very simple 3D particle renderer to attempt to demystify the process of converting 3D into 2D.

The actual code that converts from 3D to […]
It was great to catch up with Pablo and the ActionScriptHero crew in Amsterdam, and we had a good chat about the future of Flash, the exciting changes in digital and what inspires me.
I’ve just finished my Brighton training courses which were seriously good fun, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, I’ve certainly got excellent feedback so far! My next training course is short notice; it’ll be a Papervision course in San Francisco on the 9th March particularly aimed at 3D games. It’ll coincide with the Flash games […]
Pete Hellicar and Joel Gethin Lewis put me on to this iPhone app that creates a Lego portrait of you which is awesome. But I thought it’d be fun to do it in Flash in realtime.
