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”).
