Computer Graphics

Computer Graphics

One of my long-time passions is computer graphics. Being nostalgic, I have been spending some time lately remembering how to do all of this stuff. I do most of my work on the JVM these days so I wanted to see what I could do with it.

So I hunted around and found a ton of options.

Here is a recording I made from n-body sample code in the aparapi-samples project on GitHub: The first few seconds are a recording from the original sample code which was originally presented by Gary Frost from AMD at the 2010 Java One Conference. The last part of the video records numerous enhancements I made as I learned aparapi and OpenGL on the JVM.

My next post will talk about some of the API's I tried before I settled on one I liked. Enjoy!
