A boat with a sail

Boat

A classic boat has a main body (hull) and a mast with a main sail. Using the build-in primative objects, there could be some possible boats contructed. In this blog, I used three objects: a SNOUT for the hull, a CYLINDER for the mast, and a 2D PIE for the sail. Of course these objects are scaled and textured with materials and images to be looking like (I hope blush) .

The Pokemon Go App has caused quite a global disturbance since its recent release (date?). Facebook access rate was descresed and more people access Pokemon Go daily than Twitter.  People are busy catching Pokemonsters on the roads, at schools and homes, and in the parks. This short video taken at NYC Central Park shows how popular it is. A search on Twitter for Pokemon go can get a quick understanding of this global phenomenon. Are you playing?

Bali Hut

Bali Hut

In my backyard, there is a Bali Hut. Before purchasing this house, we liked this piece of outdoor structure, and thought we can enjoy some outdoor leisure there with family and friends. And we did. Our hut is a very solid architecture. We decorated with artificial turf and fences on the three sides of the hut. It has become a comfortable place for our weekend breakfast place and retreat anytime at home. 

Because there is now furniture and fences, I thought I can make a 3D model to show what it looks like by itself.

VRBox world

VRBox world

Recently, I am working on a project about using VR CardBoard to view the 3D models or worlds created on VRMath2 website. So far, a prototype is avaiable for iPhone (tested on iPhone 6 only) capable of viewing most x3d files generated from VRMath2 Editor. However, there is no easy interface yet from it (mobile in CardBoard) to navigate x3d files. But there are three ways to start with.

Copper Lattice

Copper Lattice

Copper is a metal element found in nature. Copper atoms can stick together forming large grid-like structures known as crystal lattice. I found a picture of copper lattice from a secondary school science textbook. The picture shows a simple grid structure so I quickly coded in VRMath2 Editor to produce the 3D model below. It is a small copper lattice structure in the outer space.
