Friday fun: Dust game

Today’s Friday fun link is less of a game and more of a sort of kinetic toy. It’s a java applet that lets you introduce various elements into a small environment – wind, ice, soil, fire, stone, etc. The fun is in how the elements will interact with each other. Pour down some stone and soil, add seeds, sprinkle on some water, viola, you have a little ecosystem. Now channel your inner calvin and maybe pour down some gunpowder and introduce a flame. Whhoooooosh! The graphics aren’t much to speak of, but they’re also not the point – the fun is to be had with the tinkering. Check it out.
