Now with new hope some will be proud
This is no hoax, no one pushed out
Receive a reprieve and be a pioneer
Break new ground of a new frontier
New ideas will surely get by
No deed, or dividend. Some may ask "Why?"
You'll find the solution, the answers in the sky
A hundred times every day I remind myself that my
inner and outer life are based on the labors of
other men, living and dead, and that I must exert
myself in order to give in the same measure as I
have received and am still receiving...
The worthwhile problems are the ones you can really solve or help solve,
the ones you can really contribute something to. ...
No problem is too small or too trivial if we can really do something about it.
I have only two rules which I regard as principles of conduct.
The first is: Have no rules.
The second is: Be independent of the opinion of others.
In everything, do to others what you would want them to do to you.
What we are is the sum of 1000 lives
What we know is almost nothing at all
But we are what we are until the day we die
Together we will find the strength to go on
-Rise against (intentionally missquoted and
taken out of context)
We need to be the change we wish to see in the world.
Seven social sins:
politics without principles,
wealth without work,
pleasure without conscience,
knowledge without character,
commerce without morality,
science without humanity,
and worship without sacrifice.
If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants.
It is not enough to have a good mind.
The main thing is to use it well.
A loud "Fuck yeah!"
-From my heart (with James Hetfield's voice)

Virtual/Augmented reality package
The virtual reality package is a library for virtual/augmented reality applications. The library is currently under development and at the current stage, there is much work left to be done. For those that are interested in it, I do however provide source code and a .jar file that can be used to either build upon, or to study. The source is not very well commented at the moment and an API is still missing, but there is a set of lessons on this site that are intended to get development started.
The virtualReality.jar file can be downloaded from here
(v0.1). Be aware that the package is under development, and that things not only will be added, but existing classes also might change. I recommend that if you decide to use the package for a real application already at this stage, then better stick to the version you started the development with.
To get started with development you should follow the lessons on this site, starting with lesson 1
For those that are interested in the implementation the source code can be obtained from here. Also see lesson 1
for instructions of how to setup the related xml-files.
I am very happy to have been informed that this package has been granted the "Famous Software Award" by FamousWhy.com!
Here follows some example applications that can be downloaded and tested to see what the virtual/augmented reality looks like in action.
The stripes in the pictures are an artifact from the screen capturing, and is not something that occurs in the actuall application.
More comming soon
