Diagrams in the air

I wasn’t planning on making diagrams in the air so soon. It was a stretch goal — one that I thought would take a while to accomplish.

I had a general plan to devote some time in the next few months building support software. And then I’d be able to teach algorithms by displaying interactive diagrams in extended reality (XR).

But then today I needed to work through a geometry problem to help me build something in XR. So this afternoon I found myself creating multicolored points and axes and lines of intersection, all conveniently floating right above my desk when I put on my Quest 3 headset.

This approach turned out to be the easiest way to work through the problem that I was tackling. And at some point I realized that I was making diagrams in the air.
