Ultimate Babylon Toy

It is amazing what you can do with only VanillaJS using Babylon.js, Web Bluetooth and Firebase (why doesn’t everyone just use JavaScript… :grin:). Have been messing around with a project for a while: “Lego” Blocks that show up on the screen/a 3D Sculpting Display.

Been a very rewarding way of trying to learn how to use Babylon/JavaScript - I suppose the basic nature of the system shifts focus away from polished/complex graphics, controller inputs etc.

Sadly you can’t do that much with the app w/o having the hardware. :neutral_face: The help button in the right down corner of the app will bring up YouTube clips to explain the different games.

If anyone finds the stuff interesting, send me a message, we have a couple of prototypes laying around.

Btw, if it isn’t obvious, would be very grateful for any feedback/criticism. Bilo.online doesn’t work for you? You have suggestions on how to improve etc….

Thanks!

Excellent!
Now we can add that real ‘solid touch feeling’ to our virtual BabylonJS projects :slight_smile:
Wonderful inspiration!

If only I could find a way to connect this wired-USB cab driver toy thingee:

You could use these blocks as a intuitive 3D modeling tool. Just build and export your physical creation as STl. and print them useing the 3D print tool found under settings at bilo.online.

Thanks Q,

Awesome (geek)train simulator you have there. I suppose you actually can connect that monster, WebUSB seems to be a thing… everything is possible on the interweb :sunglasses:

Cheers,

Here’s a demo that shows the block’s ability to perform different functions based on their orientation when placed on the base. Here the block is used as a manual color selector. When the block is placed on the colored zone a color is selected depending on its orientation.
