The Pandora Engine SDK is an object-oriented development toolkit that is specially designed for multi-platform use. It allows you to create truly object-oriented programs without being restricted to object-oriented languages like C++. The environment is fully self-contained, which allows for easier porting, and the inclusion of a commercially developed VESA graphics drivers means that you can create full-screen applications that don't require X11. It is intended for creating both applications and games, and is also required to write programs for Athene, a multi-platform operating system that is based on the engine.
PyORBit is a Python binding for the ORBit2 CORBA ORB. It was developped to suit the needs of the bonobo bindings in GNOME-Python, but is usable for other purposes as well. It aims to follow the standard Python language mapping for CORBA. It can generate stubs at runtime from typelibs, IDL files, or by introspecting remote objects using ORBit2's IModule typelib capabilities.
