Free interactives science teachers can use as virtual playgrounds while exploring physics concepts

Physics Playgrounds

Hey! What’s up? I’m still digging for old samples I made with Adobe Flash (Sorry again, iOS devices!), and the free physics engine called Box2DFlash. I found samples I made to explore the physics engine capabilities, and I decided to put them all together and showcase them as virtual physics playgrounds. You can rearrange both static objects and objects affected by gravity, and you can throw them to explore how they behave and are affected by other objects, gravity, and fluids.

Freebie: “Pizarra”-to Create Interactive Drawings

This is a cute experiment I built back in 2010 while I was trying to figure out the ins and outs of Box2DFlash, a free 2D physics engine for Flash (Sorry! IOS devices!). The way you play with ‘Pizarra’ is simple: You grab the pen and draw few things. Once you are finished drawing, place the pen back to the tray and click the ‘Preview’ button (and Boom!, magic happens!).

Currently there is a version of Box2D for JavaScript called Box2DJS.
