32/64 bit multi-platform Ethernet S7 PLC communication suite
Snap7, through three specialized components: Client and the inedited Server and Partner, allows you to definitively integrate your PC based systems into a PLC automation chain. Designed to transfer large amounts of hi-speed data in industrial facilities, it scales easily, down to small Linux Arm boards such as Raspberry PI. Hi level object oriented wrappers are provided, currently C/C++, .NET/Mono, Pascal, LabVIEW, Python with many source code examples. Very easy to use, a full working server example is not bigger than the “Hello world”. Many projects/makefiles are ready to run to easily rebuild Snap7 in any platform without the need of be a C++ guru. Very detailed documentation provided.

Zoomable user interface (ZUI) with file manager, file viewers and more
Eagle Mode is a zoomable user interface (ZUI) with file manager, file viewers, games, and more. This project is about a futuristic style of human-computer interaction, where the user can visit almost everything simply by zooming in. It features a portable C++ toolkit API for developing such ZUIs, and it features the Eagle Mode application, which provides a virtual cosmos with plugin applications. The most important one is the professional file manager with its rich, scriptable command set. It integrates file viewers for most of the common file types, as well as an audio and video player. Furthermore, the virtual cosmos contains a chess game, a netwalk game, a 3D minesweeper game, a world clock, some fractal fun, and a Linux kernel configurator in form of a kernel patch. Eagle Mode runs best on Linux, but there is also a light version for Windows, which lacks some of the plugins.

Wii joystick interface. Wiiji is the perfect joystick solution for Wii remotes on Mac. Wii remotes will appear as joysticks to the OS. It does this through a kernel extention. It can emulate keyboard input. It runs in the menu bar.
Scene is a computer vision framework that performs background subtraction and object tracking, using two traditional algorithms and three more recent algorithms based on neural networks and fuzzy classification rules. For each detected object, Scene sends TUIO messages to one or several client applications. The present release features GPU accelerated versions of all the background subtraction methods and morphological post processing of the object blobs with dilation and erosion filters, implemented in OpenCL. The framework was mainly designed as a toolkit for the rapid development of interactive art projects that explore dynamics of complex environments. The Scene GUI runs and compiles under Windows, Linux, and MacOS X, and is available in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
Free CAT tool based on OmegaT.
Autshumato Integrated Translation Environment is a free computer aided translation application. It provides a single translation environment that contains translation memory, machine translation and a glossary to facilitate the translation process. The Autshumato ITE is a derived work of the popular OmegaT CAT tool; customised for the South-African environment.
The Helsinki Finite-State Transducer toolkit is intended for processing natural language morphologies. The toolkit is demonstrated by wide-coverage implementations of a number of languages of varying morphological complexity.

Allows inclusion of Gesture Interaction via WiiMote in Web-Apps
WiiGesture is a library to add gestural interaction in web-applications that are based on Adobe Flash/Flex/Air. Therefore it uses the WiiFlash service (http://wiiflash.bytearray.org/?page_id=50) to retrieve the sensor data and an internal algorithm based on template matching recognizes performed gestures in real-time. For easier gesture training, a so called WiiGesture-Learning desktop tool was developed that automatically generates gesture templates by performing gestures with at least one repetition. The result is an XML file that can be exported and included in the WiiGesture-API so that trained gestures are known to the API. For research purposes also an analysis tool was developed to compare gestures from different participants/users. We used it to identify intuitive gestures from users for certain commands. The entire work was part of my diploma thesis I wrote in 2008 at Fraunhofer IGD. The gesture recognition API was included in a number of example scenarios.

Program a button to send keystrokes to your computer
PUB! is a Programmable USB Button on which you can program with a sequence of keystrokes. When you press the button those keystrokes are "replayed" over a USB connection. The button is programmed using an innovative and slightly quirky interface that does not require any custom software to be installed on your computer. All you need is a text editor like Notepad or gedit.
Semantics Visualization for Information Visualization and Analysis
Semantics Visualizations enable understanding complex matters in an easy way. The research group “Semantics Visualization” is working on processing, enriching, and visualizing any kind of semantic data to provide visually discoverable information. Thereby processes of knowledge acquisition, human information retrieval, and decision making are supported by a variety of interactive visual representations. The developed visualizations do not only allow to investigate the masses amount of various semantic formats on Web, e.g. Linked- Data or Social Networks, they also enable the interactive illustration of structured data. With SemaVis we developed a technology that provides various perspectives on the semantics of information. By combining different visualization techniques users and enterprises are able to perceive various data and information characteristics. SemaVis enables a facilitate human access to the “Internet of Data”.
