Unity has the ability to import pieces of code written (and compiled) in other languages; they are called Native Plugins, and this tutorial will teach you how to build them.
This tutorial shows how to download videos from YouTube and to process their frames with Python. I have used this technique to create game barcodes, images created by sorting the colours in each frame of a particular video. You can see some of most intriguing here:
This tutorial is divided in four parts:
You can find a high resolution version of the melancoil tree (2000x2000px, first 1000 numbers) here: PNG, SVG, HTML. Continue reading
This post is for all the developers and mathematicians out there that are curious to explore and visualize the bizarre properties of numbers. Although Maths plays an important role in today’s technology, many people likes to
abuse it for recreational purposes. Part of the appeal of Recreational Maths lies in the challenge to discover something new. Despite what many believe, finding mathematical patterns is very easy; it’s discovering something useful that is incredibly challenging. If you’re up for such a challenge, this tutorial will teach you how to use Python to calculate some of the most infamous numerical sequences.
Many game developers are suspicious about alternative controllers, believing that since they can’t be easily mass produced, they are useless. Well, this is the story of how an Arduino got me to San Francisco for free. Twice.
