PixiVisor – PixiVisor is a revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments. Simple and fun, cross-platform application with unlimited potential for creativity! It consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver. Transmitter converts the low-resolution video (static image or GIF animation) to sound, pixel by pixel (progressive scan). This lets you listen to the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices. Receiver converts the sound (from microphone or Line-in input) back to video. You can set the color palette for this video, and record it to animated GIF file. (Read more)
Satromizer – “Introducing the Satromizer for iPhone™, the world’s first multitouch glitch tool. The Satromizer takes its name from Chicago new media artist Jon Satrom, who frequently employs glitches in his work. I’ve created many versions of the Satromizer with Jon over the years, but this one is special… The responsiveness and tactility of the multitouch interface make this my favorite version yet.” (Read more)
Apps for Engineers & Electricians
Circuit Lab – Circuit Lab is an electronic circuit analysis tool based on the modified node analysis method. Four kind of analysis may be conducted:
- DC: linear and non linear circuits with continuous voltage and current sources
- AC: linear e non linear circuits with sinusoidal voltage and current sources
- Multifrequency AC Analysis: linear and non linear circuits with sinusoidal voltage and current sources. It allows to analyze the circuit behavior in a range of frequencies. Useful to study the bandwidth of the circuit
- Transient: linear and non linear circuits, with sinusoidal and pulse voltage sources (available as In App Purchases).
User can graphically draw the circuit and then the circuit can be analyzed. Circuit may be controlled by means of the following gestures:
- Drag: to move the circuit into the desired position
- Tap on a component: to modify the component’s parameters
- Pinch: to zoom in and out
- Double Finger Double Tap: to reset position and zoom level to the original values
Electronic Toolbox Pro – Electronic Toolbox Pro combines electronic reference material with a huge collection of calculation, lookup and conversion tools in one handy App right at your fingertips. (Read more)
Circuit Pro – The Circuit Pro App is a utility application developed to assist electrical engineers and electricians with the task of sizing branch circuits according the National Electrical Code (NEC). This application finds the appropriately sized standard breaker size based on the input circuit load, which can be entered in either Amps or kiloWatts. From this, the application is designed to look up the minimum required conductor (or parallel runs of conductors) based on Table 310.16 of the NEC. (Read more)
