Output has released THERMAL, which they describe as an interactive distortion plugin.

A spokesperson told us, "Finally, it's the software distortion we've been waiting for. No silly graphics, no fake hardware effects, no blunt-instrument processing. Thermal is distortion as actual sound design tool. Psycho killer, c'est précis."

Here's more details direct from Output...
