This was a fun layout problem I worked on for ColRD. The goal was to reverse engineer the Pinterest-style grid layout, with the added bonus of allowing items to span multiple columns. The result isn’t true rectangle packing in a strict computer-science sense (it still leaves gaping holes in the layout from time to time), but the results so far are more than usable.
You can check out my demo here, with added CSS3 transition juiciness. Try resizing your browser to watch how the layout folds in itself:
Another one of my music & color experiments. The simple premise of “simon says” is always a winner to me. This app will play a simple melody, and you try to play it back. I get up to around 10 or 11 notes before losing track. How far can you make it?
Anyways, try my simon-says simulator, and let me know what you think!
I’m beginning to think of fun projects to build for my new daughter. She’s still a long way of from being able to control an iPad, or especially a mouse, but I just couldn’t wait to get started.
Without further ado, I present to you v1 of my digital Lite-Brite (cleverly renamed to “Brite Lite” for trademark purposes. Please don’t sue me).
In addition to “pinning” basic colors to the board, I took the opportunity incorporate Mudcu.be’s briliant Midi.js midi bridge, for basic music-making capabilities.
Overall this was a really fun little diversion. I hope to post more music and color experiments in the future! Click the image to try it out (will take a moment to load). Only tested in firefox and chrome.
