Additional Information

miPhysics is a physical modelling framework built on Processing. Users can specify a mass-interaction system in the code and interact with it using a Haply 2DIY or other hAPI-compatible device. The avatar representing the end effector and the physical elements in the simulation are visualized in the sketch window and sound synthesis is possible through Minim.

Example code is available on the miPhysics GitHub repository and more information on it is available in the HAID 2019 paper.
