Our local group has developed a free JAVA applet that helps users to
study spatial geometry in a dynamic and interactive way. Using it, the
user can rotate, zoom out, zoom in and translate a plethora of
polyhedra. Moreover, the program is able to compute topological and
geometrical duals of each polyhedron. Geometrical operations include
unfolding, plane sections, truncation and stellation.

Suggestions are welcome!

Thanks in advance, Humberto.
