Algodoo - 2D Physics sandbox
Making use of the same core technology as the AgX Multiphysics Toolkit, Algodoo is designed and developed for educational use. With different solutions for classrooms, schools, cities and regions Algodoo stands out as a innovator in physics education.
Science education for a new generation
As the number one software for creating interactive physics simulations, Algodoo is the perfect tool for learning, exploring, experimenting and laborating with real physics. The Algodoo software is designed and optimized for future classroom solutions like 1:1 computing, interactive whiteboard systems and other modern technology. Also including content like lesson plans, pre-made scenes and tutorials, making Algodoo both easy to learn and use.
Playing with with Algodoo is engaging and fun. With simple draw-and-click editing you can build and interact with physical objects exploring the real world. Build and play with rigid bodies, fluids, chains, gears, gravity, friction, springs, hinges, etc. Interact by click and drag, tilt and shake. Use color traces, graphs, forces, etc. for enhanced visualization.
Algodoo has evolved from the immensely popular Phun - 2D physics sandbox with over 2 million views on Youtube.com and 1 million downloads. Phun was created by Emil Ernerfeldt in his master thesis. In august 2009 Phun was transformed to the commercial product Algodoo - 2D Physics Sandbox, a complete physics learning software. It now includes several more editing possibilities, tools and advanced features for visualization and plotting, and is used in schools all over the world.
Algodoo unleashes your creative mind, and changes the mindset about what you can do with physics. The learning model is much inspired by the work of Seymor Papert's´constructionist learning paradigm. While student centered use certainly is the most important use model, Algodoo is also excellent as an instructional tool for teachers, who can use Algodoo to visualize the laws of physics in a very engaging way.
Algodoo is based on the same state-of-the-art simulation technology found in AgX and accurately simulates Newton’s laws of mechanics with conserved energy and momentum. The mechanics includes friction, restitution, air resistance and buoyancy, fluid dynamics, springs and dampers, potentials with quadratic or linear falloff, and hinge constraints with motors of adjustable strength and speed. In addition to this, Algodoo also have optics with laser beams that reflect and refract based on a materials refractive index, and electric circuits will be available during 2011.
Algoryx aims to make Algodoo the number one software resource for teaching, learning and exploring physics using computers. By creating a strong networks and long-term relationships with both our users and different business partners we hope that Algodoo can reach that level of spread. Algoryx, with Algodoo, have alredy reached the global market through collaboration with multi-national companies like Intel and SMART Technologies.
