Simon Sadler of October Tide ltd.
has been developing the "Newton For Quest" plug-in for quite some time now and we were very pleased with the results.
Fortunately we were able to transfer the project to Quest3D so we can provide this great physics engine to our users without any additional licensing.
Power Render is a general purpose 3D Software Development Kit, intended for C++ programmers on the Windows platform using DirectX 9.
The 3D engine can be used for virtually any 3D application, including games, screen savers, commercial visualization, character animation, and more.

The application of artificial inteligence to solve a physical puzzle
This thesis presents the design, development, and implementation of an intelligent agent capable of solving a physical puzzle.
The puzzle is a three dimensional maze in which a marble must be moved from its starting point to a target cell in the opposite corner.
A control scheme is designed to enable the agent to perform the physical moves to be simulated.

Exploded Views for Volume Data
Exploded views are an illustration technique where an object is partitioned into several segments.
These segments are displaced to reveal otherwise hidden detail.
Our approach employs a force-based model: the volume is divided into a part configuration controlled by a number of forces and constraints.

Evolutionary Design of Buildable Objects with BlindBuilder: an Empirical Study
Evolutionary Design addresses the issue of automatic design of buildable structures and objects with the use of Evolutionary Computation.
This field has been growing along with the availability of more and more powerful computers.
Major achievements in this field range from evolved creatures[14, 12, 2] to the design of satellite antennas that were actually launched in space  and various designs of everyday objects (e.g. chairs) and/or structures[1, 9, 7, 13] (e.g. brigdes, walls, etc.).

Cloth Simulation with a Rigid Body Physics Engine
This paper describes the modification of a rigid body physics engine to simulate an elastically deformable object cloth.
Cloth is approximated as a grid of rigid body components connected by virtual damped-springs.
The motion of the cloth is simulated, by the physics engine, using discrete integration of the laws of dynamics governing the behavior of these rigid bodies.

The goal of this work is to describe a prototypical system for more natural, non-invasive, interaction techniques.
These interactions are analyzed in real-time, and are used to drive the user interface to a billiards simulation.

Virtual Reality Chat
Virtual Reality Chat (VRC) is a 3D chat application supporting the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) protocol.
In addition it supports an own simple chat protocol, too.
VRC can be used in 'Walk-Through' or networked mode.
In Walk- Through mode, you can enjoy the virtual reality and chat with others using IRC protocol.
Haptics refers to technology which stimulates the user's sense of touch.
Users are able to literally touch and feel characteristics about computer generated objects such as texture, roughness, viscosity, elasticity, and many other characteristics.
The human tactile and kinesthetic senses are stimulated through computer controlled forces which convey to the user a sense of natural feel about a virtual or remote environment.
RobotRace is a simulation environment using the theme of a recent contest organized by the US Army, in which autonomous all-terrain vehicles had to race in the desert.
The user provide the vehicle controls as a DLL conforming to the interface specification.

BlindBuilder : a new encoding to evolve Lego-like structures
This paper introduces a new representation for assemblies of small Lego-like elements: structures are indirectly encoded as construction plans.
This representation shows some interesting properties such as hierarchy, modularity and easy constructibility checking by definition.
Together with this representation, efficient GP operators are introduced that allow efficient and fast evolution, as witnessed by the results on two construction problems that demonstrate that the proposed approach is able to achieve both compactness and reusability of evolved components.
