  • Peer to Peer Video Conferencing Prototype (Skrumble)

    At Skrumble, we were looking for ways to allow video conferences with minimal server involvement. The prototype was designed to test a new pattern for connecting users in a peer-to-peer system that balances bandwidth use while not requiring a server.

    At the end of the experiment, the prototype handled more than double the number of participants advertised by other P2P video conferencing systems. The server was also only involved in the initial contact when joining a call and had no part in the signaling past that point.

  • Curve Based Terrain Generator

    This project was meant to make it easier to create high-quality, interesting terrains. The main approaches that existed when I made this involved painting heightmaps by hand or using a random generator and tweaking parameters while hoping for the best. This system allowed you to specify areas where you wanted certain features - such as mountains, or a valley, or a beach - using curves, and the system would then use a variety of noise generators to fill in the gaps, creating a single terrain that makes sense, looks good, and fits the design.
