Make sure you check out LitDev's January challenges.

Here's more info about his Physics Challenge: Light Beam!

Physics Challenge

Write a program to reflect a light beam off a rotated surface.

Further challenge - make a game where the user must rotate the surfaces to get the beam to bounce off several surfaces and hit a target.

 

Zock took a crack at solving it: http://smallbasic.com/smallbasic.com/program/?LMB722

Use the up/down arrows to change the angle on the reflector.

 

Math Man also made this version: http://smallbasic.com/smallbasic.com/program/?XKS442 

 

What do you think? Have you tried it?
