Creative Coding Podcast

A new podcast has been brought to my attention called the Creative Coding Podcast.

Hosted by Seb Lee-Delisle and Iain Lobb, two names I’m sure you will recognise from the UK Flash scene.

They will be discussing the ins-and-outs of programming for visual and creative applications. The first episode only went out on 30th January 2011, so it is still early days. Give them your support by subscribing in iTunes now.

Here are direct links to the three episodes so far …

Enjoy!

UPDATE – October 29th 2012 – New episodes have been added below …

ARtisan – New Augmented Reality framework for AS3

July 22nd, 2009 by Adrian

ARtisan

A new augmented reality framework for AS3 has been released. It is called ARtisan and is from OneZeroThrice. It claims to be easier to use than the popular FLARToolkit from Tomohiko Koyama (aka Saqoosha) (I think ARtisan is built on top of FLARToolkit). I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but the YouTube video is pretty interesting.

If you can see this, then you might need a Flash Player upgrade or you need to install Flash Player if it's missing. Get Flash Player from Adobe.

If you are interested in this you should also check out FLARManager.
