This post actually just exists to make a point.
Monday, November 10, 2014, I have successfully defended my master’s thesis and can now call myself M.Sc. That is great and of course I want to share this with the world. So, my full thesis can be found here and it’s a great read, but I do understand if that is too much for you. […]
So I did the first Space Invader Hat, that I made a dozen pieces of and everybody was happy. But there is always someone, who want something different. In order to fulfil all needs brought towards me, I made this second hat. And I want to share the pattern with you folks. It is very […]
After I did research on a game of Hex and also now doing research on Tetris, I am very very happy, to present to you now the gem my partner found online: Hextris. It’s Tetris on a Hexagon. It blew my mind.
Years ago, I started these and gave them all around. However, I never published a pattern for them. With an upcoming move, I remembered that I promised someone to make them one and haven’t managed in five years (there are _good_ reasons for that, though). Finally, I made another one and this time, I thought […]
For the last election campaign, we needed small tokens to identify our candidates again. This time I made felted pins in the shape of sunflowers. And now that campaigning time is over, I want to share the pattern. Materials needed Felting Mat Scissors Fine Felting Needle Sewing Needle Some Thread Empty Pin Yellow and Green […]
In another post, I explained a probably non exhaustive list of the different types of Choosing Blocks Algorithms that might exist for Tetris. Here I explain Pytris, a script that has the logging abilities for research into the algorithms. This is part of my ongoing Master’s Thesis Project. If you’re interested in the source code, just contact me! […]
I am currently writing my Master’s thesis and using Tetris as a game of reference. In a pre-test I needed a quick version of Tetris, that records a lot of the interaction and tests different algorithms for choosing blocks. Before I present the resulting implementation (Pytris), I want to briefly talk about algorithms that choose […]
Last week we spent some time at the Baltic Sea. There is a tragicomic story to tell about how I lost my phone and found it again in the beach two days later although the cover was done in a sandy colour. It still had 50% battery, alas I didn’t have it for the day […]
In May I was at the XII Conference on Culture and Computer Science in Berlin and gave this talk when it was accepted as a contribution to the conference by a peer reviewed abstract. That was also my first conference ever at which I was talking, so I was a little nervous. However it worked […]
