Slingshot! Preview

Slingshot! is my new personal project. It is a work-in-progress suite of tools aimed at enabling the coordination of design information among different software environments. The project is open ended in its trajectory and may take some radical turns in the course of its development. Several plug-ins which will fall under the Slingshot! 'banner' are already near completion.

Below is a preview of my plug-in for Grasshopper which aims at combining the power of parametric design with 'the world's most popular open source database': MySQL.

I am placing the finishing touches on this plug-in... so hopefully you will see a release for testing this month. In the mean time, stay tuned for more information!

My questions: Will this be useful to you? How will you use it?

Release date for testing: April, 2011
