Jao (which doesn't stand for anything) is a realtime system for combining and composing various visual effects and mathematical functions. The end result is graphics which are deeply controllable on the fly. It has been likened to a modular synthesizer that makes pictures instead of sounds.

Jao is an Open Source project, and doesn't quite work the way we want it to yet, but is on Sourceforge and can be found easily by searching while there.
