Smalley Lecture on 'The Physics of Computer Games'
An exciting new series of free, science-themed lectures is coming to LVS Ascot this Autumn, and kicked off on Tuesday 5th October with The Physics of Computer Games from Dr Jon Purdy of Hull University.
In his lecture, Dr Purdy discussed the physics of modern computer game design, giving demonstrations using computer game hardware and software.
Dr Purdy said: "From calculating the angle that a ball bounces off a wall to modelling the frictional forces on a rally car, physics has always played a part in the development of computer games.
"In recent years, the drive for more realistic environments has led to the implementation of quite advanced physics simulations in computer games software."
The Smalley Lectures, named after LVS benefactor and former student William Smalley, will continue throughout 2010 and will be open to all members of the local community.
