DOWNLOAD: One of the coolest demos ever for the Tablet PC

Check this video demonstration out:

This is the predecessor to the "Physics Illustrator for Tablet PC", a free program & educational tool for Windows XP Tablet PC or Windows Vista Tablet PCs. 

Essentially the idea is that a person could draw objects on a screen and actually animate objects using true newtonian physics:  Balls could roll down hill or over stationary objects depending upon their position relative to gravity.  Objects suspended from springs or threads could rock and bounce as they are impacted by other moving objects, creating tru animated examples of simple harmonic motion.

In any case, if you have a Tablet PC, the software is downloadable from:
