This is a very funny and addicting game. You have to create a haul and transport for a short track some nitro boxes, without making them explode. The final score is calculated on the time it took you and on the number of boxes which didn’t explode by the way.

When Blender met Open Source

Posted in Blender, Open source, Software with tags , , , on June 5, 2010 by Temitope.A

Blender logoBlender is the free open source 3D content creation suite, available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.

The first version of Blender is dated 1995, when Ton Roosendaal rewrote some of the softwares he was working with in NeoGeo. Three years later he created a society, NaN (not a number) and released Blender as freeware. When this society failed he hailed a donation campaign and then made Blender opensource. This has made Blender grown in an unpredictable way, bringing it in the position to stand with the most famous and costly 3D softwares. If you are interested in Blender’s amazing history, read it on the wiki user manual.

Visit the blender main site to start knowing this SW better; you will soon find out that the secret in Blender’s success are its users, always eager to help new-comers trough forums like http://blenderartists.org/forum/, to develop Blender and to partecipate in the foundation’s projects, like they’re doing for http://durian.blender.org/

So what can you do with Blender? You can model, sculpt, texturize, animate, and even make games. Blender is probably the leading software in the open source world. This is the current spash screen of the 2.5 version, under development.
