SnapStudio – a physics drawing app

April 12, 2018

Here’s a fun new app in the browser written in Java with Box2D. I basically took a version of ReportMill and added Box2D support, turning every vector shape you draw into a Box2D shape, so that when you hit the “Preview” button, all the shapes fall with gravity and interact with each other. You can even click and drag a shape to further knock things around.

It’s not particularly useful at the moment – but it’s definitely kind of fun.


Click the image to run in the browser. Send me a note if you think it’s cool (jeff at reportmill).
