New version of EJPO-website released!

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2018-05-07 18:53:18

After a long time of barely any changes on the website of the European Jazz & Pop Orchestra (short: EJPO) I did some major changes (or better said: I made a completely new version).

A lot of functionality is not embedded yet, but this summer will be a lot of additional work there.

You can have a look at the new website (except the restricted backend) at

Since some major changes of Bootstrap in 2016 I was pretty annoyed that basically a lot of functions of the website were not working anymore.

As you can already see, I changed the layout and functionality of this blog quite a bit.

As this site is finally working again I will be happy to share again my work and experience with you.

Feel free to contact me with the email in the imprint-section if you are interested in certain things and want some details.

Last but not least: Thank you for OVER 25K viewers, this is incredible for me that just sharing some ideas and showing progress in projects is reaching so many people. I won't disappoint you anymore so be hyped for future content!

Prototype HoloLens-application for Synthetic 737

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2017-09-10 10:45:23

I made a prototype of a plane-information-application for the HoloLens for the guys of Synthetic 737.

The next two months it can be tested at their place. After that there will be a better version and even more applications for them in development.

Presented Prof. Thompson -- our first SteamVR-game

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2017-02-06 13:23:32

Today we presented Prof. Thompson -- our first SteamVR-game -- at the University of Applied Sciences. We feel like the audience really likes the game as far as we can tell as well from our playtests that we did.

We will hopefully make a trailer/teaser and an own subpage here for it soon, which you will find here on this page.

Another cool thing is that if we find a good hurdle we can further work on Prof. Thompson in our second term and maybe release it one day as a complete game.

Until this day come you can check out footage soon on the said subpage.

Hot phase for Prof. ___ and creative impact

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2017-01-25 02:19:35

No worries. The SteamVR-game is still in progress and is now in the hot phase. Two weeks to go then Prof. ___ (still untitled) will be presented in the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg.

I promised some secret data:

  • It's an asynchronous game
  • One player in front of a screen, the other one in VR
  • It's a puzzle-ish game
  • It requires team-work
  • It is made with Unity 5
  • We work as a team of 3 people

Enough with that, we will do a presentation here as well, so stay tuned.

Additionally my mind just gave me a huuuuuge impact for another game-idea, which I will start in my spare-time in February, so stay tuned for that as well.

As some of you already heard I am doing now my master studies in Interactive Media. As well as in my bachelor studies there are some projects to do.

The first one will actually be the development and programming of a SteamVR game.

I can't say much more right now, but stay tuned. All information will be found here.

Graduated BSc

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2016-09-30 15:15:38

Proud to announce that I finished my bachelor studies in Media Technology and Design and from this day on I am Michael Staudinger, BSc.

But this isn't the end because tomorrow my master studies Interactive Media begins.

Presentation of MeInPictures

In the fifth semester I and my colleague Antonia Haslinger did a project for the subject Generative Arts.

We did a programm which handles real-time-webcam-input and generates a mosaic of it. So soon you can view yourself as a bunch of fruits or some parts of the nature.

There isn't really a use for that but it's maybe fun for some of you.

If and when this is released is unknown, but the more excitement is shown, the more effort I will bring into this software.

Wow. Never thought that so many people would ever find this little spot in the web. That some of you are pretty interested in my work is even better.

Thank you all for visiting and sharing!

There will be much stuff in the near future to see for you, i.e. a huge stop-motion-animation-project including nearly 50 students, some post-production-stuff and a new web-project.

Beside that I will start streaming again soon, so gamer-friends: Be aware!

Spource-development stopped - too much work

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2015-09-09 14:53:19

Work to do for EJPO,
new project s'App for the fifth semester,
work for my bachelors is in need
and the fifth semester is starting soon.

This is just a little overview what I have to do in next time, so sadly I have to stop the development on Spource for some time.

I made a working "template" for it, but it is far away from becoming a game.

I am sorry about that and you will be informed here when there is time to continue.

Xbox360-Controller-Manager for libGDX released

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2015-05-23 14:38:18

My framework for managing multiple (or a single) Xbox360-Controller in libGDX for Java is done.

You can use it for free. I would love to be mentioned in your credits, if you tell your friends, family, etc. of me and my work or just contact me and tell me if this worked for you.

I tested it with two wired controllers, so I do not exactly know if it works with wireless controllers.

Be sure you create a libGDX-project with the project-creator of the libGDX-creators and add the "Controllers"-AddOn.

Afterwards you can just add the whole "at"-directory to projectDirectory/src/.

Here you can find the whole documentation of my framework
and here you can download the framework for free.

Started development of a new game

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2015-04-02 14:43:16

Beside the small 2D-prototype which will be created in the 4th term in university, there will be an own project where I want to use my new skills.

I will leak little information for now:

  • Name of the game: Spource
  • Programming language: Java
  • Used libraries: libGDX, Controller-Management, ...
  • Type: 2D-Space-Shooter
  • First release: 4th quarter 2015 (Closed Pre-Alpha)

Upcoming information you will find continuously here on

The concept is set up but how this project will evolve is written in the stars.

Finished my first 3D-model

by Michael Staudinger

Posted on 2015-03-17 09:16:39

After around 40 hours of work I finished my first 3D-model: Sandy/Sandman from the film "Rise of the Guardians"

There are still some issues in the grid/texture, but I am okay with that.
