Galaxy Physics in your Hands!
Galaxy Collider simulates the universe in your hands. So brace yourself for the collision of the Milky Way with the Andromeda Galaxy!
Galaxy Collider simulates the physics of interacting galaxies by computing the gravitational forces between the stars and the heavy galaxy centers.
Galaxy collider features a high performance particle engine that can interactively visualize spectacular galaxy interactions. It uses OpenGL point sprites for rendering thousands of high-quality stars at high frame rates.
The parameters of the simulation, such as the number of galaxies and stars, masses, etc. can be changed interactively to explore the infinite number of possible interactions between the galaxies.
Galaxy collider uses the build-in accelerometer of the iPad to change viewpoints and add real external forces to the simulation.
