FIREFLY GALACTIC INTERACTABLE SIMULATOR
Programming for Game Engines (2021-22) #1
at Goldsmiths University of London
2021 - 2022
This project is an improved version based on a previous demo project.
The work has created wondrous nocturnal VR sights that mimic fireflies' behaviour (movement) and relatively coordinated signals (light frequency) through procedural states in a forest. Although fireflies are incredibly attractive insects, the magical scenario is designed to provide a relaxing and natural but digital fairytale place by virtually sharing this spectacular dance of lights emanating from these wonderful beings' phenomena. To experience a rare look at fireflies, users can walk around in meditation or reach out to interact with fireflies, or just lie down or sit beneath the fireflies in this hypnotic environment in the company of their everchanging coloured light.
