We have been busy this month, working hard on our prototype.
Please do keep in mind that this is still very early UI, our focus right now is on coding.

More info on Voronoi Diagram here: En.wikipedia.org
You can check the original code here: Github.com
This is what I have used, a port to C++: Github.com
And here is Amit version where he expanded it considerably: Github.com
Also check Amit's article, it's amazing!
