OpenVRML is a VRML and X3D browser plug-in and C++ toolkit for incorporating VRML/X3D support into applications. It provides VRML97 and Classic VRML X3D parsers, a runtime, and an OpenGL renderer as C++ libraries. The renderer is fully separate from the runtime library so that users can also provide their own renderer. The OpenVRML browser is provided as a D-Bus service, and is embeddable in host applications using XEmbed. The distribution provides both a stand-alone host and a host that runs as a Mozilla plug-in.
KeyFrog monitors the keyboard and visualizes its usage statistics. The user can obtain much information about keyboard activity: the intensity of keyboard usage, how was it distributed in time, which applications were used, etc. This may be very useful, for example, to developers to monitor their productivity. The environment being monitored is the X Window System (text applications are explicitly supported if run inside an X terminal).
shva is a Web-start graphical editor to hear, view, and annotate speech. It is designed to access speech databases over the Web. It opens from the browser when the user clicks on a link to an utterance. It then runs as a separate GUI application. Edited annotations are saved back to the database. It is currently deployed for the FreeCLAS seed database.
Vis/Space is a client-server system for visually exploring data structures in 3D virtual space. It allows the placement of various data sources in a three-dimensional environment. Custom search terms can be entered into a query field, or can be navigated to and from an existing object. All objects like images and "text screens" can be moved around. A single click on an image shows the full-resolution version in the foreground. Whole collections of images can be moved. A click to the cube also toggles among several different possible layouts. Data sources include search engines, microblogging, Wikipedia, image/video search, and 4chan.
pyFormex is a tool for generating, manipulating, and transforming large geometrical models of 3D structures by sequences of mathematical transformations. Thanks to a powerful (Python based) scripting language, it is very well suited for the automated design of spatial frame structures. It provides a wide range of operations on surface meshes, like STL type triangulated surfaces. There are provisions to import medical scan images. pyFormex can also be used as a pre- and post-processor for Finite Element analysis programs. Finally, it might be used just for creating some nice graphics.
GoFigure2 is a cross-platform application for visualization, processing, and analysis of out-of-core multidimensional microscopy data (5D data sets). Users can visualize images, segment cells in 3d, track cells through time, and detect cell divisions to generate lineages. Results are stored in a MySQL database back-end. Once data has been processed, cell-based object features are quantified and can be used for sorting, color-coding, analysis, or exported to external tools. GoFigure2 was developed for biology research including studying the development of embryos (zebrafish and mouse), synthetic biology (signaling), and for drug screening.
