Angry Otto

In the video, the moving dot represents the location of the mouse pointer and Otto really hates mouse pointers. It's fun to make him chase the pointer in the actual application and to see his cross little face snap at it when he gets close enough makes me giggle every time. It's surprising how much life and fun you can impart in just 200 lines of code.

I'll have to wait and check it out at home. I'm at stupid work, where they actually expect me to work.

Otto's got celebrity written all over his 200 lines. I'd like to know which two people on the planet wouldn't giggle at his antics. Did you code HIM, too?

I did code him. It took a lazy afternoon to do because I'm not that gret a programmer (as a cursory examination of my code would prove) but Processing is such a lovely language for playing with graphical ideas that it rewards even the more cack-handed scripter like me.

Or that "gret" a proof reader either apparently. Sorry.

Ha. I'm probably the last person anyone to worry about typos. If not for typos, my ... wait. I thought that would work, the 'if not for typos, my blog posts would be half as long' gambit, but it CLEARLY does not. And I don't even know what a gambit is.

I finally watched it furtively at work. Very giggle inducing.
