Happy Birthday, jPCT-AE!
« on: March 03, 2015, 08:51:53 pm »
Today is the 5th anniversary of the first public release of jPCT-AE, the Android version of jPCT.

Some (fun) facts:

  • 10 official releases in 5 years
  • Combined number of downloads of apps that are using jPCT-AE from Google Play: ~16 million (+-35%)
  • Completed projects (that i know of): ~60
  • Used by Google, Samsung, Texas Instruments, Intel, BEUMER Group, Autodesk...and maybe you!
  • Number of master theses that used jPCT-AE (that i know of): 3
  • Number of Android devices used for development: 9

Here's a little image to illustrate the evolution (from my first test scene on a Samsung Galaxy with Android 1.5 to my current stuff on a Nexus 4 with Android 5.01):



May the next 5 years be as interesting as the last...Happy Birthday!

Google used it for benchmarking it's Google TV project afaik, Samsung, TI and Intel...i don't know exactly. I think i knew about TI, but i forgot about it. BEUMER uses it for visualising luggage transportation systems and Autodesk uses it for Homestyler.
