 It will encompass a wide range of tools spanning from kinematics and dynamics
 simulation to robot interfacing and control.
 
-The software is implemented in Python integrating the
+ARS uses
 `Open Dynamics Engine (ODE) <https://sourceforge.net/projects/opende/>`_
-and the `Visualization Toolkit (VTK) <http://www.vtk.org/>`_.
+as physics engine, and
+`Visualization Toolkit (VTK) <http://www.vtk.org/>`_
+as graphics engine.
+While both are well regarded and popular open-source software,
+ARS was designed to minimize coupling with them
+(through included abstraction layers)
+to let developers experiment with other alternatives.
