Brain Workshop is an implementation of the Dual N-Back mental exercise. This exercise is a mental activity that has been scientifically shown to improve your working memory (short-term memory) and fluid intelligence. The game involves remembering a sequence of spoken letters and a sequence of positions of a square at the same time. Brain Workshop includes additional challenging game modes beyond Dual N-Back.
Multiplication Station will teach your child to add, subtract, and multiply. It is a multi-user application with a simple admin interface. All parameters are configurable, like grid size and the fonts and colors of number ranges. A countdown timer is used to keep the player's attention focused. A list of high scores is maintained.
Burr Tools is a set of programs for solving some kinds of puzzles, namely puzzles that are made out of square, cube-shaped, spherical, or triangular units, and whose solution also contains only pieces aligned along those grids. The program finds assemblies for the puzzle and animates how you have to assemble for some of them.
ChangeBlindness is a small game that demonstrates the change blindness phenomenon. The effect shows that our brains have a low-level (i.e. subconscious) change detection capability that can be disabled pretty easily (for instance, with a flicker of around 100ms). The game illustrates this using an increasing number of icons, one of which will change during a flicker. The goal of the game is to find the changing icon as quickly as possible.
