Runner up at Core77 awards 2012 , LeARn Physics is an original educational construction game for learning electricity. It offers, by simulation, the possibility to create and manipulate electrical circuits thanks to an immersive, emerging and accessible technology (augmented reality). With a software, a computer, a webcam, and a set of pieces of paper, students have access to infinite virtual resources to understand, through experience, how works electricity. They can create, like a puzzle game, electrical circuits (with generator, lights, LEDs, switches, motor, …) and safely analyze their behavior if they are properly performed or not (eg: bulb lighted or burnt). Learn physics is a box containing software, a webcam, and a book with explanations and pre-cut pieces of cardboard. Each polygonal piece includes at least one “in” (where electric current come in) and / or an “out”(where electric current come out), a front face calls “visual” and back face calls “informative”. The front face: visual. Each piece has a symbol. This symbol is the ID of object, that means this symbol defines if the room is a generator, a light bulb, … The iconography used is similar to that of physics, so for the bulb the symbol used will be (image), for the switch (image), …. It functions as a marker, so once viewed by the webcam and analyzed by the software, the 3D element corresponding to the symbol (bulb, button, engine, …) is virtually mapped on the puzzle piece. The back face: informative. The front is the informative part of the element. It has the same symbol as the front face but it’s associated to a question mark. When it’s analyzed by the software, the user accesses to the characteristics of virtual element (power, type, name, …) For example he knows that it is a 50 Watt halogen bulb. LeARn Physics offers, at lower cost, the potential for children to handle (even if it is virtual way) electrical circuits to better understand the complex matter. With augmented reality technology, we can imagine to use and handle all kinds of objects, the oldest ones to the future, more microscopic to more gigantic, simplest to rarer, cheapest to more expensive, and harmless to harmful. Learn Physics open the borders in terms of cost, time and space. Moreover, its potential could be used to understand and address other scientific terms. For example in biology: construct a human heart to understand how it works …
Like game (levels dictated by the software) or freely, children can simulate the construction of electrical circuit thanks to augmented education puzzle. When two pieces are fitted together, the software identifies their relationship and creates a connection between them, as if we connect a battery to a bulb by electric cables.
The interest to learn Physics and augmented reality is that the user can manually interact with the elements or the virtual circuit. For example it may, by gestures, change the type, size, or shape of one element (same piece) or it may interact with the virtual switch to start or stop the circuit.
A help system is also available to guide learners on error. If once the circuit started there is nonsense, the system informs the user of its errors and suggests possible solutions.
Thomas Jovelin is an independent company that developed web sites for the communication and medical education. I designed his logotype and developed his own website in Action Script.
La Vaguabonde is a fresh band created in 2009. Their music is between French songs and hymn to travel, all sprinkled with a touch tzigano-Romanian with catchy and committed texts. To help this young group to share their love and passion for music, I created a website with essential information of the group (concert, biography, songs, video, pictures ...)
Hassan is first 3D game realised by myself from simospis to programming. This platform game talks about a young egyptian, Hassan, who must save Naour. She is hold by mummies into the royal pyramid. The young hero must solve riddles, avoid traps, and confront the mummies to set free his girlfriend.
To be aware of the different stages in the creation of a video game, one semester of the third year of my design Master was focused on " How realize a 3D video game ? Wich stages ?"
Redaction of a synospis, drawings protagonist, rules of the game, and 3D characters and animations, game logic, programming and communication around the game
Wizzball is a 2D game based on the mythic Pong. It was first time that I had to imagine a game in all aspect (story, gameplay, programming data, scores...). The idea of this game is based on same bases to the original pong (exchange of projectile between two players). Nonetheless, in this game each player can salvage utilities to improve his spacecraft (munitions, bomb, health, fast ball ...). The objective is to score 8 points or to destruct the spacecraft of your rival.

Locations ile de Noirmoutier is an online website for rental vacation houses in Noirmoutier Island, a small pretty island located in West of France, very famous in spring and summer seasons.
Trace is a new mobile interactive and community service that won honor mention for creativity at Orange Dream contest 2009. With Trace, people can in real time, leave traces of their passage in the places they have visited (thanks to geo-positioning technology). At any time and everywhere, you can check pictures left at the place where you are and comment them. Trace also comes with a web application meant to locate on a world map the pictures taken by your contacts and follow their journey in the world.
Thanks our smartphone, you leave a trace (picture, message...) since place where you are. Your message is save on Trace server and Trace users can access to it if they are located in same place.
La Vendette is an online website for a Bed & Breakfast (Guesthouse) in Noirmoutier Island, a small pretty island located in West of France, very famous in spring and summer seasons.
