Okay…I don’t have a Tablet PC to run this on, so I’m not sure if this is the application I saw demonstrated by Microsoft Research awhile back, but if it is, it’s very cool. Here’s the brief description of the Microsoft Physics Illustrator for Tablet PC: “Bring your drawings to life with the Physics Illustrator, a motion simulator for the Tablet PC. Simply draw two-dimensional bodies, connect them in various ways and apply forces, then watch as animation makes the bodies move, collide, and interact.” Just the kind of thing for a geek’s Tablet, and oh-so-satisfying to play around with. Enjoy!
I could see a demonstration using Phisics Illustrator and I could see this tool is very interesting to teach phisic. But I haven't Tablet PC. I have a portable computer and an Interactive Board.
It will be great to know if is possible to use it in a PC. If the answer is YES, where can I download it and where is the information to set up?
I know these replies are quite old but, jump on hypercube ( http://blog.hypercubed.com/archives/2006/02/05/how-to-use-physics-illistrator-on-non-tablet-pc/ ) and you'll find out how to use the Physics Illustrator on your computer.
Works fine for me, i'm actually reprogramming some parts of the application...
