zzNewton2 is a screensaver that duplicates Newton's cradle with ray-traced 3D graphics.
Newton's cradle is a device that demonstrates conservation of momentum and energy using a series of swinging spheres. When one sphere at the end is lifted and released, it strikes the stationary spheres, transmitting a force through the stationary spheres that push the last sphere upward. The previous sphere swings back and hits the still nearly stationary spheres, repeating the effect in the opposite direction. zzNewton2 is rendered in beautiful 3D graphics set atop 8 different background choices.
Because some people have asked about the author both here and on other websites, Javier is a regular visitor and indie developer who creates screensavers and small apps and makes them available to you on MajorGeeks. You may not have heard of Javier before, but MajorGeeks has always supported the smallest of developers since 2001. As always, all files on MajorGeeks are scanned, tested, and reviewed.
