    That is pretty cool, but I`m guessing that the "Smart-Board" (As they`re called in the UK), would have to have a physics card installed to process the forces?

    That would never work. My old physics teachers would spend all their time playing with it and no classes would ever be made. Then they would have to fight me and all the other geeks at school who wanted to try it too.

    What concerns me is the default and variable values. How much did his cart weigh (its mass)? Or the marbles? What was the spring tension on the springs? What did the cup weigh that the springs were holding (its mass)? Was friction accounted for? If so, what was the frictional coefficient of the various parts? And, finally, can we change all of the above values, including the force of gravity in order to, say, simulate conditions on the moon, or simulate different materials, etc.?

    Argh, so much to think about! Very cool, however, very cool! :-)

    "...quoting SmagBoy1 above..."

    I would imagine all the variables you stated would be variable. I can`t imagine someone would go to all that trouble to create such a program without being able to specify all needed parameters. I would love to get a copy of that program...

    My school is only a few years old so it`s got all the high tech stuff. Why didn`t they invest in a sweet physics ness board!

    my school dystric has something a little like that called smart board except the dont really play and represent physics all you do is move things. I think theyre kinda a waste of money cus they arent that fun after a couple lessons with them

    I wouldn`t be surprised if you can adjust all the varibles. Most likely the professor was showing simplified examples for the purposes of demonstration.

    Awesome, but it messes up when he`s drawing the second plank - you clearly see him illustrating a rectangular shape, and as seen as he completes the last line (width, so no mistaking the intended shape) the computer switches it to an obtuse triangle. Notice how he says nothing... his silence speaks volumes.

    at the school i went to in 10th grade, we had a smartboard in my physics class....of course, my teacher was frickin rich, and i think he paid for it himself, but yeah....


    This program really reminds me of The Incredible Machine.....where you play with the different objects to reach the goal....really cool

    I would love to play with this program....It`s too bad i won`t be in school when smartboards are as common as chalkboards and dry erase boards.....but i think it`s worth it....I don`t wanna be in school that long. lol. I`m so glad I`m graduating this year.

    lol. that kinda got off subject, but yeah.

    the smartboard thing is still really awsome. :D

    Pretty cool concept. My school has a few of those smart boards. my question is how does the computer determine the density of the marbles, or which way the box connected to springs moves before anything hits? i suppose the teacher could type that stuff in. eitherway, pretty cool

    "I would so draw my friends being hung by their testículos and add springs so they would jiggle."

    How retarded do you have to be to have the gall bastardize a program like this for your own sick games? Grow up. There`s more to life than porn, and it`s not funny when you inject the subject into every conversation.
