Agent warp engine: formula based shape warping for networked applications
Computer visualization and networking have advanced dramatically over the last few years, partially driven by the exploding video game market. 3D hardware acceleration has reached the point where even low power handheld computers can render and animate complex 3D graphics efficiently. At the same time, networking has become ubiquitous. Unfortunately, end-user computing does not yet provide the necessary tools and conceptual frameworks to let end-user developers access these technologies and build their own networked interactive 2D and 3D applications such as rich visualizations, animations and simulations. In this paper we introduce the Agent Warp Engine (AWE), a formula-based shape-warping framework that combines end-user visualization and end-user networking. AWE is a spreadsheet-inspired framework based on variables that can easily be shared among networked clients. To build rich visualizations, end users define these variables, relate them through spreadsheetlike equations and con...
