Hi wonderful people.

I'm Andre Hamman currently in South Africa.

I like building things, generally interactive tools or kits geared around frameworks enabling content development rather than content generation itself.

I work in VR and AR focused on community upliftment and empowerment through training or remote assisted learning and maintenance using emergent tech.

Passionate about socially and ecologically aware growth and development.

Today is a build to the Quest day.

So much of my UI needs to be retooled and tweaked

I needed a rest API to generate some normal, height, specular and a custom mask map from an aldebo image based on a json specification of physical material properties.

So I utilised some inspiration from cpetry.github.io/NormalMap-Onl and now I just post my image blob and a json spec sheet to the API and the server will return to me my set of maps based on some snazzy math from conversion of physical properties to visual equvilants in 3D properties encoded to maps.

Got to mess around with server side canvas'es for the first time today.

Having a REST API to image processing is actually pretty damn useful.

Considering adding an API to my image gen projects. If client side is suffering Abit just render your content statically and shove a blob into an img source for your thin clients.

I'm quite excited by the possibilities of it all.

I've been thinking a lot recently about a sense of responsibility that comes with designing type. It's a field where the customer frequently cannot tell the quality of the work above a certain level, so as designers it's important to ensure that quality stays high. If enough designers start half-baking things because they can get away with it (or because they don't know better), it's a race to the bottom.

I feel like this must also be true of other fields. Does anyone have another example?
