The 10 Minute Progressive Web App

There are many frameworks and services that promise to turn your site into a Progressive Web App (PWA) easily. In practice, it’s really quite simple to do yourself. This article will walk you through the process of setting up a PWA so you can see how easily it can be applied to any website. Google’s... Read the full article

ARcostume: A Progressive Web App

ARcostume isn’t unique in placing AR widgets over your body. But it moves the starting point of Augmented Reality from an app, to something physical you wear. It’s something you can talk about immediately and show people with just one instruction: “Scan the QR code”.

Camera Integration

2019-09-11

Set up a simple camera selection and hooked it up to the <video> element with getUserMedia(). It’s still a little low resolution but walking around you can see the changes in color as expected.

Video Test



Trying a video stream as the image source and it’s working perfectly. Wiring this up to a camera at this point is trivial!

Create A Neural Network With TensorFlow.js

TensorFlow.js is an extremely powerful machine learning framework. But its demonstration apps can be a little intimidating for newcomers. I wanted to make a straightforward example of a model that demonstrates the basics of TensorFlow.js. In this article walks through a simple classification model which solves for XOR.

Color Averaging



As the image data reaches out to the edges, the #WebGL sphere still retains the same number of facets for each iteration of the spiral. So each iteration is averaged out to produce the same number of pixels. Right now the image is flipped and rotated slightly but it’s very close to the result I... Read the full article

Spiral Map



Taking another stab at the sphere map. I swapped out the test image for one that’s easier to follow pixel by pixel. This time the script assumes a 17px square image. It reorders the image pixel data by starting in the center and spiraling out.

nod.js

Google’s Cardboard viewer standard has no standard control scheme. This is what led me to write nod.js, a simple gesture based event system for Google Cardboard enabled web apps. It uses device accelerometers to detect a sharp motion in one of four directions: up, down, left and right. With nod.js you can implement actions such as next, previous, confirm and cancel without the need for an external controller.

First Attempt



The 3D approach is becoming more complicated than I anticipated. Applying a direct pixel map of the center portion of the image distorts it unrecognizably. It appears as though the sphere polygons are referenced in a spiral pattern starting at the north pole all the way around and down to the south.

Color Sphere



Manual colorization of a #WebGL sphere in three.js. Originally, I was going to make a 2D canvas app that averaged out camera input into a mosaic of hexagons. The 3D environment adds a level of technical complexity but it also has the potential to add spherical distortion effects and possibly some subtle animation.

Complete Game Demo

Got the #Phaser game all buttoned up for the presentation. Added character selection to the main screen, some extra sound effects and more tweaks to the animation. Follow the links to take it out for a spin and then take a look through the #JavaScript on GitHub.
