Back when I took physics in school, it was all about studying the 'laws' discovered by a bunch of old dead guys, and crunching lots of numbers. If only we had this type of visualization to make things more interesting.
Created by Thiago Costa, the Lagoa Multiphysics 1.0 physics engine takes all of those boring formulas and calculations, and turns them into an amazing rendering that's simply cool to watch.
So far the Costa's program can render reaction videos for high friction granular materials, incompressible fluids, elastic structures, plastic deformations and others, and the numbers of potential applications for this is pretty mind boggling.
Any video game developers watching?
