Rhino Grasshopper Controller - Android app

Interesting Android app developed by Sam Bernaerdt

'The Rhino Grasshopper Controller sends all the sensor information from your device directly to Grasshopper. From there you can do with it whatever you want and control your geometry with gravity, rotation, light or touch input...
It sends all that data via Wifi to your network and uses the gHowl plugin to read it back in.'

Starling - Grasshopper plug-in

Starling is a new and very interesting grasshopper plug-in developed by Mateusz Zwierzycki.

'Starling mesh tools. These components enable mesh parametrization, so it behaves like a surface - you can evaluate points at any place etc. Is it accurate ? - not at all, but give it just a minute and you'll probably fall in love. Mesh morphing, remeshing, smooth curves evaluation (see group image), 3d convex hull and last but not least - slFastMesh - which will enable you to stop thinking about meshing parameters and start playing.'
