Visual Programming with cables

Cables is your model kit for creating beautiful interactive content. With an easy to navigate interface and results in real time, it allows for fast prototyping and prompt adjustments.

Working with cables is just as easy as creating cable spaghetti:
You are provided with a given set of operators such as mathematical functions, shapes and materials.
Connect these to each other by virtual cables to create the scene you have in mind.
Easily export your piece of work at any time. Embed it into your website or use it for any kind of creative installation.

Be part of the private beta phase

Cables will be launched for private beta soon.
It will be under construction and experimental for quite some time, but it is still ready for you to play with it.

Who?
