Yesterday I was at a dinner, when we arrived we had to choose a beermat for our drinks. All beermats where customized for the guests and you had to figure out which one was yours. For me it was really simple (unfortunately I broke it):
The next day I woke up with an urge to implement a digital bead creator. Actually the idea to this came from my my girlfriend Anna and her friend Matilda who did a cool artsy project a year ago. They had the idea of doing something interactively with digital beads. Check out the I bead you project.
Also I have wanted to try out flash GPU support for some time but never gotten around to do it so I decided to strike two flies in one hit (as we say in Sweden). This was very easy and I only ran into one problem: The GPU support didn’t work at all at first. After an hour of browsing and reading forums I decided to try update my device drivers and viola, there where more triangles than I could count. I looked around a bit for a 3D engine to use and finally went with Away3D 4 beta. It was really easy to use. Here is the result (you can’t save your creations or anything so screenshot it if you want to keep).
