BVW is over, ... with a Bang!

November 2012 - The building virtual worlds class is over. I might miss this because I really loved prototyping games and working with each team was a new experience altogether. Apart from continuously improving myself in terms of working with a team, managing time, ... I made sure I learnt something new technically each round

round 0 - unity and time reversal in game(got featured in EGP August/September 2012)

round 1 -  psmove programming and generic AI code for shortest path in a maze(Was really happy when another team made use of this for their last round)

round 2 - Kinect and mapping hands to cursors on the screen to interact with objects in a 3D environment

round 3 - Eyetracker and implemented a modified PSO in a video game(featured in GameDeveloper Magazine March 2013

round 4 - HMD, created an immersive experience in terms of look/feel with lag free head tracking and surround sound

round 5 - Voxel programming and gesture prototyping 

Also"Aquario" made it to the BVW show 2012 so yay!
