Sweden-based multiphysics simulation developer Algoryx Simulation AB announced Algodoo, an interactive application designed for physics education in elementary school-level classrooms. Algodoo provides a 2D simulation environment for teacher-led physics lessons. Instructors can use in-application items such as rigid bodies, motors, chains, and gears to demonstrate gravity, friction, and other lessons central to the study of physics. The program is optimized for use with Intel's Classmate PC, a low-cost laptop computer designed for children. The Classmate PC's touch screen is used to draw interactive objects within Algodoo, and physical models can be captured and transferred to the application via the Classmate's built-in camera. Once a physics scenario has been established, the Classmate PC's accelerometer is used to conduct virtual experiments using objects within the application. Algodoo is a follow-up to Algoryx's Phun, a similar physics application that was released as freeware in 2008. A limited demo version of Algodoo will soon be made available at Algoryx's website.
