Dan - have you been throwing chairs at Agnes? that's not nice!

and Gui - the elephant isn't safe yet!:

I am just glad he stopped dropping the elephant...

Ouch! Hopefully this will not be tested with real chairs and persons. Awesome simulations!

I am coming forward, I admit I was a victim of this chair.

Awesome !!

this and the elephant clip make me ponder what's the possibility of modeling and simulating a composite material.  elephant = skin + muscle + skeleton.

Less elasticity wouldn't be fun

This is great.  I have actually thrown this sort of chair (the white version) around quite a's not quite as elastic as that, but close.

Nice Daniel! Classy music as well!

I didn't have my speakers on the first time
