Happy Solstice

Posted in: General News | December 22, 2011 | No Comments


For us up in the north, today marks the winter solstice. That means the shortest day of the year. And does that mean the latest sunrise and earliest sunset? Nope! Try it out with the Pocket Sundial for the iPhone.

Velocity Raptor Released!

Posted in: Velocity Raptor | December 15, 2011 | No Comments


Special Relativity. And dinosaurs. Could you ask for more? Go play this fun flash game, and master all that abstract physics in the process.

As one player (unprovoked) said: “I learned more playing this game for 15 seconds than I did in a semester of physics class.” Who am I to disagree?

And lest you think this is all just idle fun, this is a true Special Relativity simulator. Developed from the ground-up, it presents a 2D view of a world where light is slow and you move fast. The warping you see, the strange color changes, and the odd timing-effects are NOT approximations. They are not ‘artistic renderings’ of what you’d expect to see. This is truly simulating a world according to the rules outlined by Einstein. Painstakingly crafted for your gaming pleasure.
