What is this?

A simple physics simulation/meditation/relaxation experiment. Which you can view here

Why?

Ultimately the main motivating factor for this experiment was my desire to learn a bunch of "new" technologies:

  • Box2dWeb - Rather than roll my own physics I decided to finally take the plunge and learn how to use a real physics engine.
  • SVG - Most of my prior experiments were built using Canvas or DOM rendering. This turned out to be a good chance to try out SVG.
  • CoffeeScript - 99.9% of my coding at work is in JS. I was curious what all the hubbub was about.
  • Web Audio API - As a last minute decision, I decided it would be nice to play with something entirely new.

What came out of the combination of the above is something that I find myself staring at for unexpectedly long periods of time.
