Radar Screensaver

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Though conceptually simple, Radar Screensaver earns our respect thanks to a stacked feature set. The program displays an accurate depiction of a radar device as it scans your screen, emitting blips and sounds from time to time. It then identifies the type of aircraft it has detected and can even track the supposed movements of Old Saint Nick. We really appreciate the high degree of user configurability this screensaver offers. You can specify traffic intensity, rotation speed, and grid style, and you can change the color of the beam, the grid, and the markers. Radar Screensaver also let you fine-tune many specific aspects of its appearance, such as whether to display a contour map or terrain noise, and you can add a personalized message to the entire scene. We think this program will be most appropriate for science and electronics buffs.
