Tools / Projects

Some recent noteworthy tools and pet projects I did for fun in my spare time.

Retorte Koordinator
A Google Maps modification which facilitates the work with different coordinate systems (Swissgrid/CH1903, WGS84 world coordinates, UTM, Gauss-Krüger).

Retorte IntervalMusicCompositor (Download) and IntervalMusicCompositor Android app
Software to create randomized extract compilations from a set of music tracks.

Retorte Publicitor (discontinued by end of 2017)
A generic publication platform for clubs and organizations (Sample).

Retorte TextSynthesizor (Download)
A random text generator which analyzes entered text and creates similar new text. Based on the theory of markov chains.

Retorte SensorSamplor
A generic data sampling software which I use mainly to turn Raspberry Pi devices into distributed sensor nodes / data loggers.
