Mesa Dynamics has released an alpha preview version of Amnesty Hypercube, software which lets Mac users employ Google Gadgets, Flash games and video and other web widgets on their desktop.

A web widget is a mini-application intended for insertion into blogs, homepages and social networking profiles. Amnesty Hypercube converts these widgets into standalone desktop widgets that live outside the browser.

Amnesty Hypercube can also be used to extend Apple’s Dashboard widget library by allowing its converted widgets to be pushed into Dashboard with one click.

The software features an extensive directory of over 150 web widget providers that can be explored from inside the application.

The application easily imports any web widget from these providers with its 'NoClick' technology, which automatically creates a desktop widget when HTML code is copied to the clipboard.

The alpha preview of Amnesty Hypercube for OS X is immediately available for download and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

A preview version for Windows XP and Vista will be available in August 2007.
