Carianne’s and my final project focused on making a processing program that could actually represent a game of volleyball. We each focused and worked on different parts on our own and then brought them together in class. I worked on the mechanics of the ball and how it was effected by gravity, the hand, and how it would interact with the environment. It took awhile for me to look up, understand, and write the equations for gravity and make it look real. It also took awhile to have the hand variable keep track of the speed that it was going and impart it onto the ball when it touched the edge of it. Carianne focused on the net, background, and how the ball would interact with objects. When we brought the two together we then added a set of state machines to allow it to keep track of score, position, and even begin to play with serving and playing the game.
