Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
A quick link with something for you to play with. Acrobots is totally pointless but also a great waste of time.
The way the little creatures grab on to any surface they can, and the way they reach for each other as they fall is wonderful to watch. I like to add loads of the acrobots together and then watch as they jump and climb over themselves trying to hold as many hands as possible.
I’m sure that it’s all technically quite simple stuff, but it looks so natural that you can’t help but wonder at the cleverness, and simplicity of it. It fascinates me far more than it should.
