LIDAR for Mapping, Homebrew CoverFlow, Browser Exploitation, and Dependency Injection

  1.

  2. Coverflow (Github) — an iPhone project implementing Coverflow using iOS 6 UICollectionViews and a custom UICollectionViewLayout [...] I think the interpolation technique I use is rather neat and allows you to easily adjust the layout and behavior of the layout. (via Jonathan Wight)
  3. BEEF ProjectThe Browser Exploitation Framework. It is a penetration testing tool that focuses on the web browser.
  4. Dagger (Github) — A fast dependency injector for Android and Java. (via Chris Aniszczyk)
