A Particle System

This is an example of a Flash particle system, where basic behaviour of one particle (e.g. follow mouse, disappear slowly, etc) is specified. A number of particles are created each frame, providing interesting effects.

Shopping cart

This shopping cart was incorporated in a HTML web site. User can create several bags, change their styles and drag-and-drop items into them. Clicking on items displays their information. A list of items in the bag is provided along with a subtotal updated each time an item is added.

Reminder widget

This small Flash application shows the time and date. It also lets user set up a reminder for a certain time with specified text. The widget could be used on community web sites or in user areas.

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.

Citations count fails to measure the impact of research

Academic career progress is often judged by so-called "h-index", that measures how much your research is being cited. I recently had a detailed look at what exactly the citations, specifically those reported by Google Scholar, amount to. Only a relatively small fraction of the reported citations corresponded to research being applied or reproduced in a meaningful way.

V-REP, Gazebo or ARGoS? A robot simulators comparison

Let’s have a look at three commonly used open-source simulators for robotics: V-REP, Gazebo and ARGoS, to find out which one suits your project the best.
