What is it?

The lava lamp program started out as a small experiment with the aim of simulating a simple lava blob. The first version was extremely primitive and was only able to show a few blobs that bounced from invisible surroundings. From there, it grew into a more sophisticated and visually appealing application.

Even though the physical model has been improved, it does not try to reflect the real world exactly. The application has been designed as a mixture between being physically exact and just "looking good", which is why you will often see unrealistic behavior. However, we are still working on improving everything.
