processing particle library

We started to merge all the physic based processing sketches into one library. This is the first version of the Particle library for Processing (still buggy and not yet complete). It is a simple mass-and-force simulation, based on fundamental physical laws.

The library makes it possible to explore the physical and material-specific ideal of complex forms and structures. Since the particle system is built on actual physical quantities and units (such as meter, second, newton, ...), it is the aim of the project, to include the behavior of specific materials into the simulation, to explore the interaction of material and form of complex structures.

you can download a zip file including the library and two processing examples and the source code here. Please also take a look at the java reference.
