This course is for students who have already attended a programming course and are familiar with basic programming concepts such as variables, conditionals, loops, arrays, and objects. In this course, we will extend and consolidate these programming skills.

Most examples and programming tasks in this course will be about "things that move" (on the screen). We will create many interactive graphical programs by using the Processing programming environment. The main literature will be "The Nature of Code" by Daniel Shiffman (the book is available online for free).

The block course is about objects that move, accelerate, collide, and bounce. We will explore the basic formulas that allow us to let dynamics things happen on our screens. Furthermore, the basic concepts and the usage of a physics engine will be explained. However, these applications, which are fun to play with and which leave a lot of space for your creativity, are also a means to an end. Along with them, we will refresh and consolidate the knowledge about programming techniques for handling data structures, iterations, and multiple aspects of object-oriented programming.

The content of this course was previously part of the "Advanced Techniques for Creative Coding in Processing" course, which is now split into two parts.

This course is not available for computer science students but it is open to Digital Media students.

Over the past two decades, VR has established itself as an important tool in several industries, such as manufacturing (e.g., automotive, airspace, ship building), architecture, and pharmaceutical industries. During the past few years, we have been witnessing the second "wave" of VR, this time in the consumer, in particular, in the entertainment markets.

Some of the topics to be covered (tentatively):
• Introduction, basic notions of VR, several example applications
• VR technologies: displays, tracking, input devices, scene graphs, game engines
• The human visual system and Stereo rendering
• Techniques for real-time rendering
• Fundamental immersive interaction techniques: fundamentals and principles, 3D navigation, user models, 3D selection, redirected walking, system control
• Complex immersive interaction techniques: world-in-miniature, action-at-a-distance, magic lens, etc.
• Particle systems
• Spring-mass systems
• Haptics and force feedback
• Collision detection
• Acoustic rendering
The assignments will be mostly practical ones, based on the cross-platform game engine Unreal. Participants will start developing with "visual programming", and later use C++ to solve the assignments.
You are encouraged to work on assignments in small teams.
