My daughter wanted/got an akai Miki ii mini midi input device for Christmas, so I ended up sitting with her trying to up date the firmware as it just was having none of it. God their software is crap.
Anyway, the daughter had setup shop on the floor, as they do, so we were sat there and the dog had decided it wanted in on the action and proceeded to barge in and stand with front paws on the laptop keyboard.
It was like slow motion! She wandered in, paws connected, the screen displayed a whole bunch of artifacts, then went completely haywire, followed by a BSOD, but only a poor rendition of the sad face part on the top left.
Forced reboot, and I had visions of the laptop being dead, the motherboard being shorted out by the weight of a dog.
Fortunately it appears to have survived. Yes both the laptop and the dog!
.. so I think I should take this opportunity to say it....
I am trying to write some shape operations.
By shape I mean polygon whose side are bezier curve (instead of simple straight lines).
And by operations I means like finding the outline of a random shape, or removing one shape from an other.
You bet it is - a fun personal project I have been working on is taking a hand drawing of rectangles and circles and converting it to a shape map, identifying circles and rectangles. This was after a colleague mentioned that it would be great if we could take hand-drawn diagrams and convert them to the diagrams our software generates.
There a a few articles online regarding blob detection that help, but like you say - it's hard.
I am no artist and my hand-drawn circles are painful to see but I have managed to distinguish between circles and rectangles and interestingly enough I did not use the commonly suggested method for determining whether a shape is a circle.
