the vortex — milkred

by sbrothier & 1 other
Vortex is a game that empowers you to change how you are identified by networks. The ‘Internet’ does not exist. Originally conceived as a shared collective experience of ‘inter-networks’, today it is a mass of overlapping filter bubbles. These bubbles curate us into data-objects to be consumed and purchased by advertisers.  Browsing is determined by your consumer profile. Media-mining companies exploit invasive technologies such as IP tracking, geo-locating and cookies to create specific advertisements targeted to individuals. What you see, hear and the feeds you receive are gathered from your friends list, emails, online purchases, etc. Content presented to you is neither freely chosen nor objectively shown.

Agents With Faces - What Can We Learn From LEGO Minifigures?

by sbrothier (via)
Abstract—Emotional facial expressions are essential for agents. The LEGO company developed hundreds of facial expressions for their Minifigures, which are often the centerpiece of LEGO construction. We investigate and present a summary of the development of the facial expression for all LEGO Minifigures that were released between 1975 and 2010. Our findings are based on several statistical tests that are performed on data gathered from an online questionnaire. The results show that the LEGO company started in 1989 to dramatically increase the variety of facial expressions

BPS Research Digest: LEGO figures are getting angrier

by sbrothier
Nevermind increasingly violent video games or the ever-present danger of an uncensored internet, a far more insidious and unexpected change is afoot that could be affecting our children's emotional development. Researchers have discovered that the faces on LEGO Minifigures are becoming increasingly angry and less happy. Combined with a trend towards more combat-related LEGO themes, a team led by Christoph Bartneck at the University of Canterbury said "we cannot help but wonder how ... this impacts how children play."

Hexagonal Grids

by sbrothier & 1 other (via)
Hexagonal grids are used in some games but aren’t quite as straightforward or common as square grids. I’ve been collecting hex grid resources for nearly 20 years, and wrote this guide to the most elegant approaches that lead to the simplest code, largely based on the guides by Charles Fu and Clark Verbrugge. I’ll describe the various ways to make hex grids (I’ve counted 74 so far!), the relationships between them, as well as some common algorithms. Many parts of this page are interactive; choosing a type of grid will update diagrams, code, and text to match.
