Stimuli from Chasing Detection Experiments

- Here are some chasing and control displays for you to use in your own research.

Highcharts

- Make interactive charts for websites. Here's an example of how I've used it.

Painting an Event

- Here's how to paint a spatiotemporal pattern on a spinning disc. The 'brushstrokes' that produced the painting then replay in a compelling way when the spinning pattern is viewed through a narrow aperture. This method was helpful in reconstructing some of the displays used in Michotte's pioneering work in experimental phenomenology. You can read more about Michotte's approach - and also about ECVP 2019 - here.

One Pixel at a Time Image Converter

- One way to meditate on part-whole relationships in perception is by observing what parts look like without wholes. So, here is a web tool for viewing images one pixel at a time.

Build a Mirror Stereoscope

- A mirror stereoscope Yi-Chia Chen and I made for our old lab using the laser cutter at Yale's Center for Engineering, Innovation, & Design. Download the instructions and cutter file to build your own!

Three.js + Cardboard

- Make VR displays for phones. Here's an example of how I've used it. Look around by clicking and dragging if on a computer (but it's really much more fun on a phone).

The Nature of Code

- Code a physics engine and evolve some virtual agents. This book (by Daniel Shiffman) got me started programming simple forms of artificial intelligence for my research on perceived animacy and intentionality.

Adobe Color Wheel

- Bad at picking colors? Me too.
