Rotating Gears

The applet below is a sample distributed along with Java implementation of the OpenGL specifications. I modified the sample a little just to check that I understood how it works. When you drag the mouse the performance is really amazing. If this is not a good reason for inclusion of the applet here, then perhaps it may be used to demonstrate relevance of simple mathematics to gear switching.


If you were using a Java-capable browser, you would see very nice Rotating Gears instead of this paragraph.

This applet requires Sun's Java VM 2 which your browser may perceive as a popup. Which it is not. If you want to see the applet work, visit Sun's website at https://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp, download and install Java VM and enjoy the applet. In addition, you'll need the Java3D library available at https://download.java.net/media/java3d/builds/release/1.4.0_01/java3d-1_4_0_01-windows-i586.exe


What if applet does not run?
