Demos of Motion Events

The following examples attempt to illustrate the rich structure available in simple dynamic events. Here we consider simple events consisting of one or two "point mass" objects.

To view these events you need a VRML 2.0 browser.

Bounce event:

Interaction between pairs of objects:

Ideal collisions between pairs of objects:

Causality (after Leslie's experiments, "Do infants perceive causality"):

Other events (smooth approach followed by various behaviours of second object):
