Robotic Simulation Software ALGODOO 81002
“Algodoo is a perfect aid for children to learn and practice physics at home.”
What is Algodoo ?
Algodoo is a unique 2D-simulation software with a physics engine from Algoryx Simulation AB. Algodoo is designed in a playful, cartoony manner, making it a perfect tool for creating interactive scenes. Explore physics, build amazing inventions, design cool games or experiment with Algodoo in your science classes. Algodoo encourages students and children’s own creativity, ability and motivation to construct knowledge while having fun. Making it as entertaining as it is educational. Algodoo is also a perfect aid for children to learn and practice physics at home.
PROPERTIES of ALGODOO
Functionality: With Algodoo you can create simulation scenes using simple drawing tools like boxes, circles, polygons, gears, brushes, planes, ropes and chains. Easily interact with your objects by click and drag, tilt and shake. Edit and make changes by rotating, scaling, moving, cutting or cloning your objects.
Physical Elements: You can also add more physics in your simulation like fluids, springs, hinges, motors, thrusters, light rays, tracers, optics and lenses. Algodoo also allows you to explore and play around with different parameters like gravity, friction, restitution, refraction, attraction, etc.
Analyze and Visualize: For deeper analysis you can also show graphs or visualize forces, velocities and momentum. You can also enhance your visualization by showing X/Y components and angles.
Algobox – Sharing Scenes: In Algobox, our scene library with over 50 000 scenes, you can easily save and share your creations with friends or browse and download other user made scenes. Algobox is easily accessed from within Algodoo or from this website under Scenes.
Community: With a large and active community, engaging educators, parents and kids you can discuss and share your thoughts about Algodoo.
Technology: Algodoo is based on the latest technologies, from Algoryx Simulation AB, for interactive multiphysics simulation, including variational mechanical integrators and high performance numerical methods.
Algodoo runs on Windows and Mac OS. Algodoo is optimized for the Intel® powered convertible Classmate PC and interactive whiteboard systems like SMART Board.
DOWNLOAD ALGODOO (It is All Free)
Algodoo is now available as a free download. If you want to support the development of Algodoo you can purchase it from the Appstore with all its benefits. Or, you can simply download it for free below, either way is fine with us.
Download and double-click to start the installer, then follow the instructions.
Important: if Algodoo runs slowly, please make sure you update your graphics drivers!
ROBOT DESIGNING WITH ALGODOO
This technology makes it possible to design and test robots in virtual environments before the physical robots are built, which enables robot manufacturers to improve the performance of their products and decrease the time and cost for development.

Algodoo/Phun Internal Combustion Engine Mk. II
Imitation of internal combustion in Algodoo using water expansion with altered settings (increased water density, decreased vaporize time, etc.) The pistons are pushed by expanding water particles. Engine is able to overpower a brake of 150 Nm strength.
