Lego-style Physics Tech Demo

"Lego"-style Physics Tech Demo by Zolden

Almost any custom shapes with <= 32 sides can be used, also spheres and cylinders. Also there are 5-6 physical parameters we can modify in large diapason to create funny behaving physical materials. I haven't tried it yet, but we probably can attach forces to the physical objects, which opens startling possibilities of fun generating, like imitating matter.

For those of you that have been around long enough, you'll know the last Blizzard contest was the previous BlizzCon mapping contest. With the recent changes, Blizzard has decided to throw a nice "welcome" contest to the brand new Arcade with some pretty big cash prizes, as well as a little extra swag.
