ALPHA SOFTWARE

We have three types of software DOS, WINDOWS and MATLAB applications. You may use any of it as a alpha version. We scan everything for viruses but as with any software you download, you should scan it before using it.

We refer to our software as alpha because it is one step before Beta. Unlike beta level software, we do not support installation programs so installation is generally done manually using copy commands and zip files to set up the software systems. Also, beta software is usually referring to systems prior to production systems and our alpha software is not usually at that state although some of it seems pretty good and has been used to inspire commercial development.

We also have limited documentation and the video tutorials are generally “one take wonders” which means, we literally just did them in one take, with a few mistakes, pauses and occasional background noise. Why is it like this? Because we don’t have support for our alpha site aside from what others generously give to us in terms of resources such as this server and website. The reason we put out an alpha site is that we are looking for feedback on our systems and it keeps us in touch with the commercialization aspect of research. And, if you can struggle through, you can probably get some really good scans with just cameras and projectors that you have laying around or can borrow.
