|PicaSim - Flight simulator for radio control aircraft, currently for Android devices (iOS soon!).
|I play the concertina.
|Various photos, mostly of wildlife around Coburg (and more recently Frankfurt Am Main) in Germany where I used to work for Crytek on Crysis.
|I spent 3 years at Reading University Meteorological Department studying for a PhD, and subsequently 2 years working as a post-doc researching the effects of turbulence in the atmosphere around weather fronts.|

piece of music I was forced to resort to
writing some programs to analyse it using wavelets, which turned out to
be pretty interesting, especially as I was able to use the same
software for my meteorological work too!
|I tried playing stringy
things for a while, but didn't get very far. This coincided with my
rediscovery of programming, so I wrote this Windows application for
calculating chord shapes.
|I've looked after quite a lot of very nice rats over a number of years (though I have none at the moment)...
|I've written a flight
for R/C model gliders (though it's flexible enough to cover helicopters
and sledges too!).
|Simulating physical objects
really interesting - I wrote this rigid body simulator to try out a way
of going about it.
|A much better rigid-body
|My current (and best!)
physics library/demo (work in progress).
|My fluid dynamics demo (work
|Rendering complex scenery
from a fixed viewpoint (work in progress... sort of).
|Some simple character
movement code using Verlet integration.
|Some comments on my HP iPAQ hw6916 Mobile Messenger
|Some links to other web sites.
