The Fluid Ether
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Jump into the beautiful world of fluids, where you create currents to move balls, break boxes and collect coins! Learn about the physics of fluid motion through this adorably animated physics simulator. Why does water swirl when you try to push it? Why do ocean currents lead to gyres? What happens when two jets slam into each other?
Fluids can move in strange and mysterious ways, often counter to what we expect. Understanding fluid motion is as much a science as an art form, and visualizations of fluid flow are treasured for their beauty. Learn to create beautiful interlacing fluid patterns in this game as you navigate hand-crafted levels. Immerse yourself in The Fluid Ether! The game even includes a level editor, for you to make your own levels in the game to share with others.
