What's new in this version (1.4):

v1.4
- Colors are now calculated using pendulum length and swing angle combined.
- Even more dreamy effect by making the blurriness dependent on swing angle and length as well!

v1.3
- Autosave your settings upon exiting the app

v1.2
- Blurry pendulums for a more dreamy look! :D
- More realistic ball sizes

Description

Pendulum Chaos is a simulation of a pendulum wave. By setting up a series of pendulums of carefully selected lengths, a pendulum wave effect is generated.

For the fellow geeks out there, the basic equation I used is theta(t)=theta0*cos(t/sqrt(L/g)). The pendulum lengths are calculated with L(i)=g(1/(2PI*I(i)))^2.

You can also find cool videos of actual pendulum waves on youtube! These videos are also what prompted me to write this app. :D

How to use?
It's all pretty self-explanatory. You control the number of pendulums, initial swing angle, overall speed, pendulum size and colours.
I even allowed swing angles of up to 360 degrees to get effects impossible in an experimental setup.
Experiment with them yourself to get some really nice graphics!
Tip: Use dark and light color hues, allow some transparency to your colors, then slow down the simulation speed to really appreciate the wave effect.

I have also written another app called NTW Text Editor which you can download from the Market. It allows the editing of files with no file size limit, and will also bookmark all your editing progress in every file. If you liked Pendulum Chaos, pls do take a look at NTW too ;-)
