Hi Mattias,

there are apparently several projects, however very few take care of the 
newest developments in ODE. We have some code sitting around in our lab 
called (you guessed it) osgODE. It is particular focused on working 
together with osgART but also works with plain OSG. I have to pull some 
strings here in the lab to check if we can release it into the wild.

However, a word of caution: after implementing the ODE part we were 
quite disappointed by the performance of it in terms of dynamic 
transformations as they happen in Augmented Reality applications. We did 
some proof-of-concept prototypes with other engines which both performed 
way better.
