Relativistic Movement Viewer

The Relativistic Movement Viewer ist a program which shows a 3D-Scene when moving at speeds near to the speed of light where relativistic effects become important. The program is written in C++ under Linux and uses the ability of vertex shading which is implemented to graphic chips since GForce 1 from nVidia.
