Hi there,

I've just made a demo video of eMotion using IR pens and Wiimote Whiteboard.
eMotion is an app for creating live visual animation, based on physics models.
You can download it from my website, it runs on 10.5-Intel only.

That's really cool. It would be fun to play with. I especially liked the part around 3:45 where the particles are like waves crashing.

What I thought of for an application of this was for air hockey. Having one or multiple projectors projecting down onto the white board, then have an IR dot on the hockey puck either from a reflection or built in with battery, that manipulates the particles.

The puck could emmit particles, and then when it passes through the particles a second time, they become scattered. That would be fun to watch I think. Anyway, something like that. Interaction with a point.

Okay, I keep typing this after pausing the video for a second or so. I also really like the 3d manipulation of the grid. This is a powerful particle engine... what is the flexibility?
