Super Cool Universe Sandbox Simulator

Digg this up and give the author some love: (and by the way, there's a video linked from the Digg article, so check that out too).

It's a pretty amazing project... everything is controllable via a WiiMote. I've seen this running on a huge projection screen, and it's frankly just dazzling. You could play with this for hours.

Especially the galaxies crashing bits...

Here's a screenshot of a physically accurate Saturn, with all of its moons:

Nice simulator, but ultimately pointless.

If you are lucky then Davros will have his way: “People, the planets and stars become dust, the dust will become atoms and the atoms will become.. nothing!”

If I get my way then Davros will appear to be a beneficient guardian of all that is good and holy in the world.

So are you dropping in next tim you hit the UK or am I going to have to reality bomb you?
