My Achievement (openGL, Visual C++ .NET bollocks)

It is now Wednesday. Wednesday afternoon. I have been trying to figure out how to started since Monday. And finally, I’ve done it! I have got somewhere.

Impressive_huh

Please, click the link. Examine my work in its full glory. Yes. That’s right. It’s a square. A white square. On a black blackground. That is the sum total of my working week. Sigh.

Why am I doing this? Well, I want to use the SDK for the Tobii eyetracker. As (a) then I can do cool stuff with it and (b) the software supplied with it is rubbish. So to start with, I need to figure out how to show images….

Man, trying to use C++ has made me realise how wonderful Matlab is.

So, what’s my next task? Well, i need to make that window fullscreen, display a greyscale image on it, get the program to talk to the eyetracker and track where people are looking. Who thinks I can do it by the end of the week? (Now remember children, Friday is a holiday so I don’t have long).

Sigh. This is almost as hard a struggle as learning warr guitar.
