about bigcoolblue
bigcoolblue is inspired by avionic systems where, for reasons relating to safety critical certification, the software is written to draw straight onto the cockpit display. The fewer libraries and APIs between the avionic functions and the display the better - as that makes it simpler to prove the correctness of the code.

bigcoolblue doesn't claim to be in the same league as the companies that produce avionic systems, but we do enjoy working at that level of immediacy with the display through the Java 2D API.

We're also very intrigued by one particular question -

"Will people ever value a digital artifact - like the
Claw Chronometre - in the same way that they value a Rolex?"

We suspect probably not at the moment. But people do value their iPhones as repositories for digital artifacts, so maybe it's just a matter of time before the artifacts themselves become valuable.

bigcoolblue is based on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. And we're very lucky that we are.
