Jeff Weeks has announced the Mac OS X version of this software, previously available for Windows.

Curved Spaces is a flight simulator for geometers and cosmologists to explore finite universe models ("3-manifolds") or, "if you prefer, for tilings of 3-dimensional spherical, flat and hyperbolic spaces."

Programmers are offered to source code under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
