OpenGL Teapot

OpenGL Teapot
Saturday — January 30th, 2010

I was first introduced to the Utah Teapot during my internship at ALT Software. ALT is a computer graphics company that specializes in writing drivers for aircrafts, like the Eurofighter. A co-worker was showing me a test case for a demo when I first saw this teapot. I found it hard to believe that it is a standard object in libraries like GLUT. Goes to show we are just THAT bored in the world of programming.

    Ehn, I actually read an article about the Utah teapot, the thing is really a perfect 3d model to practice with, due to the face that it has pretty much every shape in it.
    Funny how things that are made on a whim like the teapot, can turn into a cornerstone of practice. I will see if I can find that article.

Write something, I dare you...
