Flippypad for Project Ara
Have you heard about Project Ara? Basically, it’s a phone with hot swappable components that’s being developed right now by Google. The Verge has a pretty good article about it if you want to know more. What’s interesting about this project is that besides the cpu, camera, and battery, manufacturers can create any number of weird specialty components that can be fitted into the device.
And so, I give you Flippypad! A hinged controller that turns the phone into a neat little clamshell gaming device. It has an L and R button, a D’Pad, two flat joysticks (similar to the one found on the 3DS) and the familiar ABXY diamond. It’s probably large enough to house a good amount of extra battery too.
If you want to see something like this get made, please share it with folks! If I can get the word out, maybe it’ll will find it’s way to the right people, and I can start developing it for real.

I want this phone and I want this gamepad to be on it.

Don’t you think there’s a problem with video game culture if it is so abusive by default?

There is a serious issue with gaming culture where people are abusive and it needs to be stopped.

The asker here seems to be part of the problem by believing that. Viewing their blog seems to show a lot of other concerning things.

I’m legitimately worried about the future of Earth involving this person.

CGhub has closed

qinni:

apparently CGhub has shut down D:. that really sucks since I love browsing on that site, seriously. Does anyone know any other site that’s kind of like CGhub? I don’t really like the forum-ish look of cgsociety, but yeah.

..?

No-

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo

The article has a list of alternatives but I don’t know how good they are. I host my portfolios on my own site.

Today I’m working on networking in Unity for a class that I have tonight. We have 3 team members, each with a responsibility: the player, the enemy(s), and the UI/level.

It’s a shmup with up to 4 players working together to get the highest score possible against an infinite amount of randomly spawned enemies (1 of 3).

I’m in charge of enemies.

I do not understand networking in Unity pretty much at all.

The first gameplay footage of Mewgenics!

Looks like the Chao Garden with smart AI and Pokemon-style breeding.

Definitely a day 1 buy.

I had a similar game idea around the time I heard about this game and I ended up shelving mine because this game just seems so perfect. I am very excited for this game.

And Team Meat is for sure one of my top biggest influences, as well.
