Press Release

Newcastle, UK, July 1st 2011.

Award-winning 3D software company, Caspian Learning, today unveiled the latest version of their exciting 3D sims&games creation software will be completely free to use.

The new version of the software will remove practically all of the barriers to simulation and game design that new designers face and will save new users $4999 over the old retail price.

Caspian Learning unveiled a the new version of their award-winning Thinking Worlds 3D simulation&games creation technology today. The new version  will be available to download and use for free - forever - which is a huge shift from the previous retail price of $4999. The software enables designers to create sims&games rapidly, whether they are advanced or novice users. Free users will have the option to pay for upgrades which add more advanced features.

The concept behind Thinking Worlds 3.5 is that it is able to remove traditionally hard to overcome game design barriers such as the need to have a deep understanding of programming language, the difficulty of adding new 3D art and the problems associated with publishing games. With Thinking Worlds, sims&games are easy to create, objects are easy to import and finished projects are easy to publish as programs ready to run on standalone PCs, web browsers or even iPhones and iPads.

Rapidly Create Sims&Games for iOS Mobile Devices (iPhones and iPads)

As well as now being free to download and use, version 3.5 of Thinking Worlds enables users to create and publish simulations and games for iOS-based devices (iPads and iPhones). Other mobile publishing options are in the pipeline for Q3 2011 launch.

Free to Download and Use - Forever Thinking Worlds is free to download and use from http://www.thinkingworlds.com

Embree is a collection of high-performance ray tracing kernels, developed at Intel Labs. The kernels are optimized for photo-realistic rendering on the latest Intel® processors
with support for the SSE and AVX instruction sets. In addition to the ray tracing kernels, Embree provides an example photo-realistic rendering engine. Embree is designed for
Monte Carlo ray tracing algorithms, where the vast majority of rays are incoherent. The specific single-ray traversal kernels in Embree provide the best performance in this scenario and they are very easy to integrate into existing applications.

CPU information, Android OS revision are also reported.



Main key features:



- Reports Android version, model and CPU.

- Reports OpenGL ES information and gives access to OpenGL Extension extension specification online (requires internet connection).


- Submit your OpenGL EX information into to the Cloud storage and check the results on the Mac and PC version.

- Free of charge.

- Requires Android 2.2 minimum.




Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/realtech_VR

+ Exposes ALL extensions as opposed to competitors' apps :)

The OpenGL ES 2.0 Emulator is a library that maps OpenGL ES 2.0 API calls to the OpenGL 2.0 API.

By running on a standard PC, the emulator helps software development and testing of OpenGL ES 2.0 applications since no embedded platform is required. The emulator requires a graphics card that supports at least OpenGL 2.0.

Download the latest development release v1.3.0 Milestone 1 of the OpenGL ES 2.0 Emulator and submit your feedback to the Mali Forums.

New in This Release

Note:

Intel® OpenCL SDK 1.1 is an implementation of the OpenCL 1.1 specification for Intel® Architecture Processors. This version of SDK supports CPU device only.

This is a production release of Intel® OpenCL SDK. Please read the License Agreement for better understanding of how to use OpenCL in production application on the top of Intel® Architecture Processors.

Fixed:

    Added support of user structures as kernel arguments.
    Use of not inline functions which call barrier ()/async_wg_copy().
    Usage of vector types in ternary selection operator (?:).
    Bug with compatibility of condition in integer vector type and values of floating-point vector types in ternary selection operator (?:).
    Bug in the function clGetDeviceInfo. On request for CL_DEVICE_PARTITION_TYPES_EXT returned an incorrect number for the returned size. This bug was reported at Intel® OpenCL SDK forum.
    Bug in get_global_size which returned undefined values when dimindx > get_work_dim()-1. This bug was reported at Intel® OpenCL SDK forum.
    Bug while compiling a kernel without any arguments. This bug was reported at Intel® OpenCL SDK forum.
    Bug on mad functions. When mad was used with a float argument it always returned 0. This bug was reported at Intel® OpenCL SDK forum.
    Bug on printf function: printf crashed on 64-bit Windows* OS when the output is written to the standard output. This bug was reported at Intel® OpenCL SDK forum.
    Runtime issues with earlier versions of Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB).

Setting up an Android development environment can be a complex and frustrating experience. NVIDIA simplifies this for all Android developers with a single installer that manages this complexity for you.

The Tegra Android Development Pack installs all software tools required to develop for Android on NVIDIA’s Tegra platform and is the perfect companion for developing native applications for Tegra developer kits.

This suite of developer tools is targeted at Tegra devices, but will configure a development environment that will work with almost any Android device. This cure for the common cold is available on Windows, OSX and Ubuntu Linux (64-bit).

Notes:
precompiled samples require ARM v7
installation took half an hour on my Core i3/Cedar laptop  :P

I am happy to present you a new approach to compute indirect illumination and ambient occlusion in real-time using a pre-filtered geometry representation stored inside a sparse voxel octree, as well as a new approximate voxel-based cone-tracing. The sparse voxel octree is usaed as a proxy for occlusion information and indirect illumination, it supports dynamic objects and environemnts thanks to a new very fast voxelization algorithm that updates the octree structure and pre-filter geometry and lighting information.
