Science or art

A really "trippy" simulator for your computer (a small java applet) that simulates a ripple tank - In other words, what would happen if you dropped a pebble into a fishtank with the ripples? What would happen if you dropped two pebbles? I got some really neat patterns by playing with the various settings on this one. I have no idea what the practical use is for these (other than to play with). I dug around a little on the website, and then discovered a whole bunch of these various science simulators... I'll def have to come back and mess with the magnetic ones... magnets fascinate me. (Source: Digg.com).
