An astoundingly texture-rich, CG animated marble run by Moby Motion..

The physics are so convincing, it could be real, which would have been cheaper and taken less time to render but where’s the fun in that?

Sean, Sterling and friends from YouTube gaming channel Videogamedunkey test out Stick Fight – a barely controllable, 80-level, physics-based, flail ‘n’ fire, snake-heavy brawler for up to four players.

NSFW for spirited language in the heat of combat.

Three years ago, Dublin based physics student David Whyte started a Tumblr called Bees and Bombs where he posted gifs he’d created.

Since then he’s become adept at the open source programming language Processing which, combined with his physics and maths background, has resulted in an ongoing series of striking, minimalist loops.
