And to think these folks are the future of computer science. Scary eh.
They probably didn't understand what gimbal lock was or cared about it. I don't understand why colleges don't teach alternate equations such as quaternions when they are far more stable, easily interpolated, and not prone to the pitfalls of Euler angles.
So you have to be in a masters program before the college even talks about these things? Crazy.
I'd love to see the presentation if you wouldn't mind.
