Frax HD: This alien is a fractal Julia set! You can smoothly zoom in in real time – using the accelerometer! – and explore endless mathematical landscapes. Forget about entering complex coordinates and parameters and then waiting until the Mandelbrot or Julia set renders on your screen. Dive in and change colors, lights, and textures by simple touch gestures. Frax is neither a toy nor a game. Instead it is a looking glass into the structures of our universe. Frax was designed and developed by Ben Weiss, Kai Krause, and Tom Beddard.
Photosynth is a pretty amazing tool to capture spherical panoramas. Turn around and take a set of images. Then they will be blended into one interactive projection. Photosynth is based on Seadragon, which was acquired by Microsoft some years ago. Blaise Agüera y Arcas’ TED talk is a must-see on the subject.
The app itself needs some fine-tuning. I am afraid the core team moved on. But please have a look at my photosynth’esized panoramas.
