The app, the framework and this website were created by me, Tom Mohr.
However, the original idea for Particle Life is by Jeffrey Ventrella, who called it “Clusters”.
I see my contribution as follows: I did …
- simplify the rules of particle life while keeping its complex behavior.
- generalize the concept.
- write a fast Java framework for simulating those systems.
- write a front end software for controlling that framework.
Jeffrey Ventrella also created an app for iOS that is not available on the App Store anymore and a virtual reality version (in collaboration with “Leap Motion”).
