Working on an Education App

When you launch the app, you should see something like this.  It's meant to be a showcase of a few 3D vignettes to interact with.

This is very preliminary stuff.  I wanted to share an idea I had with regards to an app development.  This is going to be a quick launch project for several reasons:

  • To expand my abilities as a programer
  • To make an app that has been on the back of my mind for a while
  • To force my hand it doing more work with 3D design and animation

I also want to make this a free resource that lets people see the 3D shapes of things.  It should be simple and useful as a teaching/talking tool.

I'm writing this with Xcode and using the Github service to keep in touch with a friend who's "showing me the ropes" in this project.  The overall goal would be to keep adding useful vignettes to the mix.

The 3D files will be generated in Lightwave 3D and then rendered in the app with OpenGL.  This is the plan for now, so wish me luck!
