Now this is just excellent. I'd say this is one of the greatest "hacker"-mentality demos I've seen in the past few years. Lot of parts causing laughs at the party as well :D

great job!

I dig the concept and the execution. I kept thinking about a lot of different "hello world" in langauge X, Y. But you proved me wrong :)

If the demo indeed does what it implies it does it's pure awesome.

Note that this ran on a dedicated machine during the compo.
From what I have heard, it's a REAL bitch to get running properly. Instructions literally are: "Install as many libs as possible until it doesn't complain anymore", plus it's linux. :)

-- So, I think you are better off watching the video instead ;)

Liked this prod. Visuals, music and context.
rulez added on the 2010-10-25 12:28:14 by SoDa7 SoDa7
i don't get it. it shows that:
- all these languages somehow support arrays, loops, elementary arithmetic and c integration.
- eh

oh wait, that's all it shows.

how is that geek porn? a for loop in FORTRAN is still a for loop. a trivial effect is still a trivial effect. an RPC call or an embedded scripting language call is still a matter of copying the example from the tutorial. what am i missing? i haven't seen a single novelty here.
sucks added on the 2010-10-25 12:45:23 by skrebbel skrebbel
of course skrebbel has a point, but it is still a cool thing/idea to combine so many languages in one prod. this isnt about showing off new effects or something.
true geek-spirit that well deserves a thumb.

The demo equivalent of playing the same tune on dozens of different musical instruments, in a good way.

All that programming languages and it still doesn't look good. Just choose one and do something better now.

I have to admit, it's not really beautiful, but i really like the idea and find it amazing - which is the essence of a demo, after all.

The design was imo good enough so sustain the concept :)

Is the source code going to be released at some point so one can evaluate the madness in getting all the langage runtimes to work together?

The idea sounds fun at first... from a coder point of view.

But seriously, this is just ugly from A to Z... the soundtrack doesn't even save it (everybody should be able to do that after some months with free synths and samples)

(and it lacks a tv noise)

ps: I'm saving the thumb down in case I missed a joke somewhere :)

Unlike what knl says, there's artistic value in the approach/concept, and ll the rest is crafting work.

looks and feels like linux !
but the presentation makes me thumb up !
but eventho its coded in 27 languagaes i dont think the code is worth anything at all !
( there are effects that work at other platforms, while language doesnt matter ;) ...or well, should be in assembly! )

i think this demo just underlines chuck yaeger: it's the man, not the machine. :/

is this a joke?. i wonder how this came in nominees for most original concept. when you're going to make a demo with oldschool effects do it right next time! it doesnt have the decency to be original with those ugly color-schemes and what not!

This can actually be quite interesting even if you are not into demos (yes, there are such people) because the source code demonstrates a large variety of different programming languages, including a couple of exotic ones and such that are hardly ever used for graphic programming.
