SodaPlay.com

This is the most addictive site I’ve found in ages. I recently downloaded the latest Java Virtual Machine so that I could upgrade my FreeMind (http://freemind.sourceforge.net) software, and while I was on the java.com site, I tried out the links to various bits of Java software. The one that has blown me away is called “soda,” and I can’t stop visiting it. The core of it is a little screen where you can use little virtual “springs” and “muscles” to construct mechanisms. The soda creatures react to “gravity,” and the placement of the “muscles” to animate themselves. I’ve finally gotten one to walk, but some of the things in the SodaZoo are almost beyond belief. If you try it out, please let me know if you like it.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management for said bank. After work, I watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving.
