Radar Screensaver 1.70 >> Screensaver category : Aviation & Space
The Radar Screensaver is a beatiful, entertaining and educational screen saving utility. It allows to be easily configured in many ways to provide you many hours of enjoying with a hi-tech animation. You will find a main circular display with famous rotating beam. It will expose the flying objects which will be reflected as blips over the display. The four sector displays will show a very dynamic picture of radio beam in four quadrants. The degree of simulation is very high, so you will see not only noises from terrain surface and clouds, but even geometric distortions caused by physical effects. Each detected object will be recognized with a Satellite-Powered Identification System (SPIDES): when flying object is exposed by radio beam, the reconnaissance satellite will take its photo and send it to computer at radar observation post. There it will be compared with known types of aircrafts and other flying objects (by the way, there are more than 60 flying object types supported) and finally recognized. You will see this process and final photo of recognized object type. Later, on each beam sweep, the detected object will be updated with path tracking line to allow the operator to view from where and to where the object flies. For those purposes, each object will be supplied with a marker - small rectangle with azimuth, speed, course and distance information. The same information will be placed into the detection logs - two columns of running digits at both sides of your display. You will be able to configure a lot of settings, and change the colors of all the animation elements. The Radar Screensaver supports multi-monitor configurations, so if you have more than one monitor connected to your PC, you will be able to turn your workplace into something like observation post. Another exciting feature, making this screensaver very useful, is ability to leave an on-screen messages. These will be shown after attempt to close the screensaver when you are away from your PC.

GYRODROME Screensaver 1.00 >> Screensaver category : Art
This is conceptually simple but beautiful and modern screensaver will give you many hours of interesting and fascinating animation. The corner stone of the Gyrodrome Screensaver animation are few rings placed one inside another and rotating around all the three world axis as relatively to world as relatively to each other. Another mobile element of virtual world on a screen is camera. This camera is permanently looking to the rings observation point. It can fly around the rings along three directions ? two of them are angles around the rings and third one is camera`s own axis pointed towards to center of the animated world. There are some light sources randomly distributed around the rings. These lights might be of various random colors and brightness and create attractive highlights of all colors and gradations. The last visible thing is background. It might be filled with flat color or, what is more interesting, a with a bitmap image in a form of spherical panorama. Five panorama images in normal and low resolution have been included into the screensaver distribution package. You can download high resolution package with these panoramas and other ones from Gyrodrome Screensaver download page. And, of course, you can choose your own image as background. Another nice feature makes the Gyrodrome Screensaver not only pretty screen saving utility. This is "on-screen-message" feature which will allow you to leave a text message on your screen when you are away from your computer. It is not visible normally, but if someone will move your mouse or touch your keyboard while screensaver is running, it will display your message instead of simply closing. Moreover, you may specify a time for which you may specify a time for which you plan to leave and create several shortcuts for quick starting the screensaver in different situations. As a sample of modern screensaver, the Gyrodrome Screensaver fully supports multimonitor computer configurations.
