The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Limbo is a PC Emulator (x86) based on QEMU for Android devices. It lets you run a Desktop OS like Debian or DSL Linux on your Android device with Network and X Windows. Limbo works with Live CD ISOs and pre-installed hard disk images created with QEMU, VMWare, Bochs, or Virtual PC emulators.
BeagleSNES is a complete filesystem image which turns the ARM-based BeagleBoard-xM and BeagleBone Black platforms into an embedded appliance capable of playing Super Nintendo game titles. It uses a modified version of the SDL port of SNES9X as its emulator, boots into a GUI frontend for selecting game titles, and uses USB gamepads as the controllers. Most titles run quite well on the platform, though some performance-intensive titles and titles which use special hardware (such as titles which use the SuperFX chip) will run too slowly to be playable. Individual BeagleSNES components (bootloader, kernel, GUI/emulator) have been broken out of the filesystem image in order to allow interested developers to examine them without having to examine the full filesystem image. Full filesystem images, as well as images containing only the BeagleSNES binary and data files, are available.
SysopView shows information in a visually attractive way, like computers in movies do. The idea is that it can show information relevant to system administrators non-comprehensible for non-technical personnel, while still looking attractive even if you don't know what is shown. The current version can show nagios status data, webcam streams (mjpeg, jpeg, and video4Linux), and VNC, has a built-in terminal emulator in which regular text applications can be run, can sniff the network (including remotely) and dissect streams and show pictures which are sniffed, can show external bitmaps (from, for example, mrtg and rrdtool), and can scroll text (currently showing output of rssfeeds).
