Gendered Toys

  • This is a data visualization project based on Characteristics of Boys' and Girls' Toys (2005) by Judith E. Owen Blakemore and Renee E. Centers.
  • The interactive visualization allows you to hover over a multitude of toys to see how masculine or feminine the participants in the study believed the toys to be.
  • Additionally, there are many subcategories to explore, from "Encourages Creativity" to "Focuses on Appearance".

Unity Fracture Plugin

  • For my final project of CIS563 Physically Based Animation, I worked in a team of three to create a fracturing plugin for Unity.
  • From Unity, we pass the plugin the bounds of a mesh as well as a point of impact. The plugin then uses a Voronoi decomposition library (Voro++) to break apart a rectangular bounding box. Next, we pass all of the edge and vertex information back into Unity and reconstruct the Voronoi pieces as individual GameObjects, making sure to clip the pieces that did not fit inside the original mesh.
  • Team of 3.
  • C# in Unity, C++.
