So hi. I am a 14 year old science dude (
) who likes to tink so much his mom has to tell him to stop bothering her. I have had some ideas of what science could do with computers and some ideas that pc's will never be able to do(But still are cool). Ok so here goes!
The idea is that there is a X*X space of pixels and a certain amount of possible colors.
The computer starts at the left top. It colors the pixel into any of the given colors. When the pixel is done, the computer moves on to the next and shifts it to the next given color and the previous pixel goes through the cycle again. Only when all the previous pixels have changed all their possible colors then the next one can change. This way you could LITERALLY get the computer to draw any image possible. ANY IMAGE(With the given colors that is.) Even the face of God(That was stupid, I know, but think about it.). The averige time for the program to finish would be
possible colorswidth*height/PC speed.
===Good Procedural music===
I know that it has already been done but usually, most I hear is three or four samples being played in different sequences and tones. The idea here is that the code given would set up a mood(Happy, sad, angry, dramatic, power, EPIC) and set up the base chords for the beginning(Like the ones in smoke on the watter), then set up a corresponding upper tune that would play, repeat, change, call back, invert and step through the octaves corresponding to the lower tune(Or this might be otherwise and the lower tune will be the general track). Then the pc may add drums depending on the mood(Sad mood might have drums in the parts where there is a gust of anger. EPIC BATTLE moods would normally have drums would play always but maneuver louder-quieter, Organized-Chaotic). This is literally the basics but since I have yet to see an engine that does this in a good way I shall leave it as is. In a second version it could also be possible to define the Theme(Like those epic choirs that you hear in WH40K or StarCraft in contrast to a jazz theme or a heavy metal theme). Another option would be to ad instrumental change, assistance and/or background at certain points.
I will update these more. That's all for now. If you have any more ideas of what would be a cool experiment on a pc then please post it here. Bye.
