Realtime animation with Animata
 

by the Animata team
Animata is a real-time animation software, designed to create interactive background projections for concerts, theatre and dance performances, and promotional screenings.
The peculiarity of the software is that the animation is generated in real-time, making continuous interaction possible. This ability also permits that physical sensors, cameras or other environmental variables can be attached.
The software can be connected with many pieces of external software in order to make use of the possibilities of these applications in the fields of image processing, sound analysis, or motion capture. These applications can analyse for instance sound input, or user movement, and this data could drive animations reacting to these environmental changes in real-time.

Hands-on web development with Jelly
 

by Tristan Perich and Kunal Gupta
Jelly is a new way of developing websites that works to close the gap between web users and web developers. The software, which is open-source, lives on the server of a user who maintains complete control over the data. Jelly wraps all the complex data processes that are needed to develop interactive, data-driven, social websites, into a web development environment that looks and feels much like the web services that users are used to, like Facebook, Flickr, or Youtube. By working to make the experience of developing a web service as fluid, natural, and beautiful as the experience of using a web service like Vimeo, Jelly hopes to empower the enthusiastic and creative class of web 2.0 service users to break free of static structures and begin to make the websites that they imagine.
Basically, we offer a really fun, fluid, free tool that eliminates many of the barriers to building and running an web service. The entire interface runs inside the browser, and no additional software is necessary.
