The dot product and its uses 2021-01-16 19:07:20


Hey, I'm looking for some feedback from programmers on this post I did about the dot product.


Also included in the post, is an interactive tool, that I made, to demonstrate what the dot product represents and why it's useful.


Let me know if it makes sense to you and how it can be improved.

I would say that this is a good description of the dot product.

Really good stuff you have written there. I'm not that good with mathematics so articles like these really help.


I know why matrices and vectors are useful, but my brain simply never even tries to apply them (nor knows how to without a tutorial on hand). I just recently understood just how good matrices are (after telling myself that I won't ever need them despite learning why vectors are so good since about 3 years ago lol) (image is relevant btw)

Nice explanation, plus TL;DR -> Conclusion.

Makes sense to me and my only suggestion is to add that TL;DR at the top. It's no wonder it'd be useful for games.

I like the visuals/interactive thingy as well, makes it easier to understand.
