Fugio (pronounced foo-gee-oh) is a free and open-source visual programming system designed for rapid development of digital art and other projects.
It is designed to enable anyone who wants to work creatively with technology to learn and experiment without needing to get bogged down in how ideas need to be implemented in programming.
Fugio has been designed and coded by artist Alex May who uses it for his installations.
