Not posing.

I love a good Porsche ad.

Found via Jalopnik.

Moment Pendulum

I have uploaded another version of our second biomechanics tool, the Moment Pendulum.

As with the previous tool, the Vector Summator, it was written using haXe in FlashDevelop. Development has been largely driven by my dad, Geoff Strauss, for use in his courses at Curtin University. The main task of the tool is to allow students to enter data about the forces that act on a limb that pivots around a joint. The tool calculates the torque moments generated by each force and sums them to provide the resultant torque in the system.
