Stochastic Observations

Tracking meandering thoughts


I love MATLAB — there’s nothing quite like it. It’s just so easy to quickly throw together simulations and algorithms. On this page are just a few things I’ve done in MATLAB that I’d like to share.


In 2008, I went on travel for work where I was on a ship doing tests for about a week. There wasn’t always things to do, and one of the guys on board was playing Pong on MATLAB. He had coded it up himself, but it was unbeatable — the computer’s paddle position was based upon the ball’s position, so you could never score a goal. But what really got me interested was the fact that you could take the mouse position and use that dynamically. This inspired me to create games with MATLAB.

    1. Sure thing, I’ll make a new post about collisions using my air hockey code. Look for it in the next few days.
