BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
BitTorrent is a tool for copying files from one machine to another. FTP punishes sites for being popular. Since all uploading is done from one place, a popular site needs big iron and big bandwidth. With BitTorrent, clients automatically mirror files they download, making the publisher's burden almost nothing.
The Bitcollider utility allows users to uniquely identify and submit files to Bitzi's community metadatabase project. The Bitcollider can be used to identify any local file and has support for extracting metadata from MP3, WAV, Vorbis, JPEG, PNG, GIF, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and QuickTime files. Users can quickly look up all the known information about the given file in Bitzi's metadatabase.
The National Space Science Data Center's (NSSDC) Common Data Format (CDF) is a self-describing data abstraction for the storage and manipulation of multidimensional data in a platform- and discipline-independent fashion. It consists of a scientific data management package (known as the "CDF Library") that allows programmers and application developers to manage and manipulate scalar, vector, and multi-dimensional data arrays.
Cultivation explores the social interactions within a gardening community. You lead one family of gardeners, starting with a single individual, and wise choices can keep your genetic line from extinction. While breeding plants, eating, and mating, your actions impact your neighbors, and the social balance sways between conflict and compromise. Cultivation features dynamic graphics that are procedurally-generated using genetic representations and cross-breeding. In other words, game objects are "grown" in real-time instead of being hand-painted or hard-coded. Each plant and gardener in the game is unique in terms of both its appearance and behavior.
EAsea Specification of Evolutionary Algorithms (EASEA), is a high-level language dedicated to the specification of evolutionary algorithms. The language and compiler are quite mature. EASEA compiles .ez specification files into C++ or Java object files, using existing evolutionary libraries. Supported C++ libraries currently are GALib or EO.
Fast Track Systems Monitor (FTMON) is a monitoring engine that can be integrated with other systems management vendor solutions. It also defines a standard that allows applications/devices to be instrumented rapidly. The intent is to allow writing an FTMON monitor for virtually every device or application, and that any detected problems from these monitors will be able to be forwarded to any systems management solution. It is currently completely configuration file based.
