Get up-close and personal with Gravity
Chunky Orbits is a VR simulation of free-floating objects in space based on real life physics. Each object in the scene attracts each of the others in a cosmic tug-of-war that we call Gravity. Tap out a few boulders and contemplate the wonders of the Universe. (^_^)
"For anyone interested in the mechanics of space or gravity, this is a fascinating and fun experience. Watching white dwarfs suck moons and asteroids towards them is brilliant fun and never gets old.

This is not a game - more like a physics-based toy. Might even be educational. It certainly gave me a new appreciation for how Gravity works.
The simulation consists of a large empty area in deep space. You pilot a simple ship and are free to place new objects wherever you like. You can create several types of objects - boulders, white dwarfs, center stones, and absorbers. You might also want to add some trails to your boulders to track their paths. You also have a sparkly photon cannon that's used to remove objects, or to stir the pot with some kinetic explosions. :)
It's a big physics based playground. Create a random grouping of boulders and watch as they collect into larger, chunky groups. Launch a super-massive White Dwarf and observe how it affects the other bodies in the system. Create a small 'solar system' and see how many chunks you can get into orbit.
