Turing Lecture - Release


Bridge-5
Originally uploaded by Croqueteer.
Here we see the bridge breaking away from its moorings. In this case, we had set any mass that we did not want to move to have a mass value of 0. This meant that it's location would not be modified in any way. To release it, all we did was set it to a non-zero value, and magic happens. The other thing we did was set the left top mass initial location to be in a different location. When this happens, AND the mass is 0, the mass will move -slowly, to this location if it is different from whereever it is currently.
