Gravit is visually stunning gravity simulator, where you can spend many hours of fun and experimentation. It simulates the N-body problem using the Barnes-Hut Algorithm.fn-F8 to start a new simulation
NOTE There is a bug with the keyboard controls. You must hold down the "fn" key when pressing the function keys (F1-F12). Press:
fn-F6 to start recording
This will be fixed very soon, with on-screen buttons.
Many features including:
It looks pretty and is easy to use.
View the simulation in 3D using stereoscopic imaging!
You can record, then play back at any speed
Stores every particle's position for every frame in memory
Compresses history when needed, for very long recordings
Mouse controllable rotation
Colours can be based on mass, velocity, acceleration, momentum or kinetic energy
See an octtree being created in real-time
Update display/input while recording a frame
