MadShaders 0.3.0 Released with 10 new Mind-Blowing Demos (Windows, OS X and Linux)

MadShaders 0.3.0

1 – Overview

Even if they look like humans, they are not humans when you see what they can do with pixels (look at Dolphin or Circuits demos). MadShaders 0.3.0 is available with new stunning pixels shaders (in GLSL) in order you can admire their madness. Be sure to have a powerful GPU and up to date graphics drivers if you want a smooth rendering!

MadShaders packs under a single interface the best pixel shaders from popular websites like Shadertoy or GLSL Sandbox. MadShaders is available for Windows 64-bit, Linux 64-bit and Mac OS X 10.7/10.8/10.9 (more information HERE).
