Virtual Physics Circus (video)

Abstract

This video shows the Virtual Physics Circus, a kind of playground
for experimenting with simple physical models. The system
makes it easy to create worlds with common physical objects such
as swings, vehicles, ramps, and walls, and interactively play with
those worlds. The system can be used as a creative art medium as
well as to gain understanding and intuition about physical
systems. The system can be controlled by a number of UI devices
such as mouse, keyboard, joystick, and tags which are tracked in 6
degrees of freedom.
