I'll go build my own JSONIP! Or tiny web service for user geo location

Maybe it will be the most tiny web service I have ever made but not less important than others.


I often create experimental webapps and need to know approximately the position of the user even if Geolocation.getCurrentPosition() doesn't work.

DarlingJS / Intro to Entity-Component-System game engine / Draft


One British gentleman Richard Lord - game developer. I had first met him and had started to read his blog when I found his implementation of a particle system - it's called Flint and it has brilliant architecture. At first he used a lot of famous Patterns from the famous book of the band of four (Like Factory, Components, Strategy, State) and it was one of the best combinations of those patterns that I have ever seen.

Parallax / On Darlingjs

Here is short article about creating parallax effect upon game engine darlingjs

What is the parallax?

In our case parallax is an effect of perception that takes place when 3D environment is translated into 2D display surface. For example we have an observer with 'view port' (2D) and some objects on different distance from the observer in 3D. If the observer takes left or right step than visually objects located nearby will move faster than objects located further away from the observer. If an object is placed very far from the observer for a short period of time it will look as if it doesn't move at all, like the sun for the observer on the Earth.

All About Leap Motion

in Russian
I think Leap Motion will be one of the famous gadget in near future. Certainly them will bring some new user experience, that we haven't before. Forrester has mentioned Leap as #1 of list of break through UIs.
But now Leap is just heap of potential possibilities. You can't find any friendly application that has developed special for Leap. And to convert possibilities to attractive gadget Leap Motion need ecosystem of creative application based on new user experience. And they do. They have sent thousands of gadget for passionate developers for free.

So they have send Leap for my too. Thanks for Leap Team.
And thanks customs brokers of Montenegro border, i have paid 30 euros for Leap and some papers. It is worth noting Leap Motions promises give me back that money, so if you want get this device.
Any way, it was worth. Leap real cool device.
