This module is a physical simulation of a ball in a square tray.
imagine a marble maze with no maze, a square area with 4 walls and a ball, Cv controls for x & y tilt, ball elasticity and overall speed of operation
cv outputs will send out the x and y position of the ball in the tray, ball velocity, and a gate out for when the ball hits a wall.
The ADDAC503 Marble Physics is a CV generator based on the mechanics behavior of a marble on a tray.
Through this realtime physics simulator you’ll be able to control several parameters that will affect the behavior of a model of a spherical object against a plane. You can tilt the plane or bump the marble with a certain strength, which will cause it to roll and bounce on elastic walls.
The model will output the object’s XY position or velocity and you can control other physical parameters, like the walls’ elasticity or the strength of a bump. When the marble hits walls the bounce output triggers and you can additionally lock the X axis for a one dimension simulation. Finally you can also set the overall speed of the simulation.
By controlling all of these properties you be able simulate several scenarios where the marble falls, gets gently pulled by gravity, orbits indefinitely or bounces on walls like a pinball. Truly engaging physics simulations!
