K-3D is the free (as in freedom) 3d modeling, animation, and rendering system.
LaTeX to RTF convertor that handles equations, figures, and cross-refe
Latex2rtf tries to convert your LaTeX file into a RTF file for opening in Microsoft Word. The general idea is to try and get the things that computers are good at correct: character conversion, graphic conversion, etc. Page layout suffers because control in RTF is pretty pathetic compared to TeX. Consequently, it is likely that manual reformatting will be needed. Translation of bibliographies is pretty good and a wide range of styles are handled, but you must typeset your LaTeX file to create the needed .aux and .bbl files first. Translation of equations used to be excellent: it used to be possible to double-click equations in Word and then edit with MathType. Unfortunately, this conversion in Word has gotten progressively worse over the years (I changed nothing!). Unfortunately, the only solution is to converting to MTEF objects, which is a major rewrite (but would make OpenOffice users much happier.) Volunteers welcome!
PGF is a TeX macro package for generating graphics. It is platform- and format-independent and works together with the most important TeX backend drivers, including pdftex and dvips. It comes with a user-friedly syntax layer called TikZ.
Library to control radio transceivers and receivers
The Hamlib project's purpose is to develop flexible and portable shared libraries that offer a standardized API to control any radio oriented equipment through a computer interface.
FreeWRL is an Open Source, cross platform VRML2 and X3D compliant browser, with script, SAI and EAI support. Platforms supported: Linux and other Unix-style platforms; Mac OS/X; Windows. Support for mobile platforms (iOS, Android, QNX) is under development.
Real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction
Gpredict is a real-time satellite tracking and orbit prediction application. Gpredict can track an unlimited number of satellites and display the data in tables and various graphical view.
Design PCR primers from DNA sequence. Widely used (190k Google hits for "primer3"). From mispriming libraries to sequence quality data to the generation of internal oligos, primer3 does it. C&perl. Developers/testers/documenters needed.
BioSig is a software library for processing of biomedical signals (EEG, ECG, etc.) with Matlab, Octave, C/C++ and Python. A standalone signal viewer supporting more than 30 different data formats is also provided.
Archimedes will be a Computer Aided Design (CAD) program developed side by side with architecture offices in order to fulfill all their needs. This way, we hope to develop software better suited for architects than the currently widely used AutoCAD.
KTechlab is an IDE for microcontrollers and electronics.
FormScanner - Free OMR Software
FormScanner is an OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) software that automatically marks multiple-choice papers. FormScanner not bind you to use a default template of the form, but gives you the ability to use a custom template created from a simple scan of a blank form. The modules can be scanned as images with a simple scanner and processed with FormScanner software. All the collected information can be easily exported to a spreadsheet.
The objective of the TPM Emulator project is the implementation of a software-based TPM and MTM emulator as well as of an appropriate TCG Device Driver Library (TDDL).
Simple and intuitive 2D vector drawing for electronics and not only.
A multiplatform vector drawing program with a complete library of electronic symbols. Schematics and drawings are stored in a very compact text format. There is no netlist concept behind the drawings (so no simulation, and this is a choice) but this allows a great graphical flexibility and ease of use, making FidoCadJ the perfect tool for exchange sketches in forum and newsgroup discussions with a few clicks. Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats, such as pdf. Follow the development live on Twitter: https://twitter.com/davbucci
IMPORTANT NOTICE: This project has moved to GitHub: https://github.com/sarahtattersall/PIPE Releases will be posted here, but please check on GitHub for the most recent activity.

It is an open project welcoming and integrating contributions from all users and developers.
Hybrid energy-efficient digital currency
Novacoin is a decentralized electronic cash system based on an open-source, peer-to-peer internet protocol. It works without a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the ECDSA private keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of the network to check for double-spending. They are also able to participate in the network protection using own money or computing power. A hybrid Proof-of-Work & Proof-of-Stake scheme is used to provide a protection against double-spend. The main project repository: https://github.com/novacoin-project/novacoin
