I have decided that I will put some time into Spheriosity this summer and decided to update this page a little in case anyone checks it. Just so you know the main page I put updates on is the project page on Spheriosity located here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/spheriosity/ That is honestly the best place to get updates as I just don't have to time to update this site and the sourceforge page. I currently have posted the latest development build of Spheriosity at: Spheriosity Alpha. Please check it out and tell me what you think. If things don't work you can let me know, but I probably already know because it is still a work in progress. The latest feature is the ability to drag points around. I am still working out some of the bugs and hope to post a more refined version around mid June. I will continue posting working development builds to the previously mentioned page so check back from time to time and you might get a little surprise. Please feel free to contact me about anything relating to the project! I would love to hear from you (even if it's about something I could improve ^_^) The best way to contact me is probably via: AbinNumber1 (at) gmail (dot) com, or by posting in the forums on the Spheriosity sourceforge page. Thanks!
Well this is the small page for Spheriosity that I will host. I don't much time to maintain it, but I will try to keep a recent version usable from a browser. It will require that you have Java3D >= 1.4 installed and Java >= 1.5, but that's it. If you goto the help section it has some information about the various tools included in Spheriosity. I hope you Enjoy the Alpha version. Please let me know how it works. My contact info is in the README file of the application. I would post it here... but I don't want to get spammed out of existence :)
Spheriosity is an application that I developed while taking a higher geometry class during college. We had a need for good models of a spherical surface and they were hard to come by. Early on I had the idea that this would make a really neat computer program. This is how Spheriosity was born.
Over the course of a month I developed the current working version which has some of the most basic functionality included in it. I have not yet decided if I will continue to work on this project yet or not. I really enjoy working on it and I think it could have real application in helping students with spherical geometry. Sadly I do not currently have time to be working on this. However there is a working version on the site and it is available for download as a jar file. The only requirements are they you have at least Java 5 installed and Java3D at least version 1.4.The downloadable version also allows one to save a construction out to a file and open it up later.
