I'm a bit of a graphics hobbyist. Back before blogs, I liked reading the finger writings from the likes of John Carmack and Brian Hook, trying pluck bits out of the streams flying over my head. Earlier in my career I got the opportunity to write a 3D wire frame engine from scratch in Delphi. At my current gig I get to a few minor graphics things, but not much.
These days the glass look and feel is rather popular and, similar to my fascination of the optical illusion of icon design, I'm equally intrigued by how that effect plays out.
I've decided to dig into this a bit in my limited spare time and share what I find here.
