dechoes – 2D physics

This gargle activated sketch can be found online here.


I cannot say that this warmup had any particularly important content driving it, I was mainly interested in getting used to Box2d and merging it with other interactive qualities. I tried a couple things first using face tracking (as I wanted the water to be generated through a gargling gesture), mouseIsPressed, or with mouseX, mouseY, and finally settled on having it be voice activated. The size and quantity of water droplets being spurted out of the faucet are driven by the threshold of the audio, generated by a gargling spectator (Although there is no sound in the documentation, one could imagine me frantically gargling alone in my bedroom at 3am).

The creation of this assignment was heavily supported by Dan Schiffman’s Box2D documentation.
