Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University are making beautiful shapes by simulating forces that are literally repulsive — like the force between two charged particles.
When computers reason about shapes, they assume that objects can move freely through each other, like a cartoon ghost passing through a wall. As anyone who has ever struggled to untangle a mass of headphone cables knows, that's not how real objects behave — yet it is a common and vexing problem in 3D modeling.Read More
