I really enjoyed your explanation of the Doppler Shift puzzle (~minute 28). It resonated with me, and reminded me of my methods. If you make a simulation with enough fidelity (be it a relativistic game engine, or the geometry and motion of bouncing balls), there are going to be some neat behaviors that pop out.

I can remember how excited I was when, after making the Special Relativity simulation, the Twin Paradox just appeared. It almost felt as if I were experimentally testing the consequences of relativity. And I suppose I kind of was.

Thanks for sharing the link. A nice collection of math/science in games, and good food for thought.
