Early Computer Animation from the Electronic Visualization Lab
The Electronic Visualization Lab produced some ground breaking technology in the field of computer graphics, animation and, Virtual Reality. Here are examples of what people were up to starting with Colorful Colorado (above) created with pioneering video synthesist, Dan Sandin’s Sandin Image Processor:
Colorful Colorado (1974) This is a example of early video art using the color capability of the Sandin Analogue Image Processor – the “Color IP”. producer/director: Phil Morton
VR avatar work 1999 – (1999) This is an informational video dealing with real-time video chromakey avatars. The video shows examples of early computer graphics animation developed by students at the Electronic Visualization Lab.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
