At the time I was still learning how to program I came across an amazing YouTube channel called The Coding Train, that featured a crazy but…

This library is mostly used for creative programming that allows you to build graphics through code. It's fairly simple to use and actually kinda fun.
I've used it to make little doodles to train my programming skills. I even used it for a college project for an art class when the COVID pandemic first hit.

At my campus, there's a small lake that has some turtles. My initial idea project was to build a small 3D printed turtle, attach some wheels, a motor and a camera to record the turtle's POV. This artificial turtle would then be inserted in the habitat of the other real turtles and record their interactions. The goal was to record the behavior of natural living beings when exposed to artificial organisms that mimic them.
The pandemic then hit, and we all had to study remotely through Zoom, and my idea was no longer possible. I had to settle for a more simplified version, which meant simulating it through a small game.

A classic toy from when I was a kid. Incidentally, I never owned one myself, but I always wanted to have one.
This was the very first doodle I made. Beware, it has bugs 🐛.
