Magic white-board from MIT!

with one comment

In a five-minute video called MIT Sketching, an MIT professor demonstrates how a computerized white board design environment can be used to enable 3-D visualization of various effects such as gravity. In the first part of the video, the graphical sketch of a car on an incline rolls downhill, thanks to an implied gravitational effect. There are also a number of other effects, such as the wobbling produced by unevenly-placed axles and the impact of hitting a speed bump while rolling downhill.

In part two of the video, there’s a pinball-inspired sketch that enables a designer to produce an amalgam of different pinball effects. Cool! :)

  1. Thanks a lot for sharing this video, really enjoyed watching it especially the second part of the video :-)
    This is another example of how fast the technology is improving and yet another brilliant product from MIT.. This bring a lot of changes in teaching stratergies at Universities where simulations play a major role..
