Crayon Physics Deluxe


A finalist for a student game competition at Carnegie Mellon “Crayon Physics Deluxe” is not a new idea, but the crayola aesthetic + music treatment sets it apart from prior programs that give you touch screen physics capabilities. A nice fairy tale soundtrack seems to tell you “physics is your friend.”

If an MIT professor were to make the same thing, it would be called “Assist Sketch Understanding System and Operation:”

This is where interface design should all be heading towards: programs that make the unexplainable functions and capabilities of a computer as simple as the complex (and similarly difficult) physics we all innately know–to help us have fun or, on occasion, be productive.
