Crayon Physics Simulates Real World

Where Real=”looking as if it were drawn by a small child with a fat Crayola” AND Real=”behaving according to the Newtonian physics we all adore”

Crayon Physics Deluxe, currently in development for the PC.

I had the honor of teaching a physics class last year and think it was a Top 5 course in my teaching career. Don’t get me wrong, computer technology and math offer their own excitements. But, is there any other course where you try to sink a clay boat with pennies, study the physics of superheroes, and talk all dv/dt on people? I didn’t think so.

Until the day I return to a physics classroom, I’ll remain content signing up to be notified when Crayon Physics Deluxe is released.
