Digital Toy from ROXIK (Motion | Design)

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

I spent many an hour this weekend en route between Eugene Oregon and DC reading Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver, volume 1 of his baroque cycle. The first part of this novel focuses on “natural philosophy” sweeping Europe during the late 1600s and early 1700s. Which reminded me of this fun digital distraction from ROXIK in Flash using some basic principles of physics wrapped in a silhouette-styled GUI. Thanks Curt!
