: P

sum exponents (after subtracting 127 b10 )
XOR sign bit
Multiply significant aka mantissa

cry in your sleep.

Oddly for my senior project, my team member thought that an Oculus VR mini-golf game in Unity was a good idea. Well at least I'm getting +exp to Unity, C#, and OpenVR. Suggested Unreal and C++, but got :? from my team-mates. My idea was to use OpenCV in order to use hand-waves or eye-movement to control everyday I/O (got 1 vote, too scary of a project?).

A few weeks in, and I can manipulate a physics object via an X-box controller and/or mouse and keyboard, build my own TRON environment while avoiding being shot in the back by a digitizing laser. Good times. Btw, PhysX, Unity's built in physics engine is awful: clip-o-rama.

Will do.

Update: graduate within a couple weeks (hopefully) after 3 finals. Two requiring study, while the third I've gotten down pretty well. Senior project presentation turned out pretty good, too.

Senior Project presentation video: done by a friend of one of our members: my job was research and programming. Sadly I'm not in the video because I'm too old and fat. :)
