The algorithm was inspired by a algorithm created by Jonas Wagner
Check out his site 29a.ch ! There are a lot of amazing experiments to be found there.
Thank you Jonas for the good work!

For the fellow geeks out there, the basic equation I used is theta(t)=theta0*cos(t/sqrt(L/g)). The pendulum lengths are calculated with L(i)=g(1/(2PI*I(i)))^2.
You can also find cool videos of actual pendulum waves on youtube! These videos are also what prompted me to write this app. :D
How to use?
It's all pretty self-explanatory. You control the number of pendulums, initial swing angle, overall speed, pendulum size and colours.
I even allowed swing angles of up to 360 degrees to get effects impossible in an experimental setup.
Experiment with them yourself to get some really nice graphics!
Tip: Use dark and light color hues, allow some transparency to your colors, then slow down the simulation speed to really appreciate the wave effect.

I have also written another app called NTW Text Editor which you can download from the Market. It allows the editing of files with no file size limit, and will also bookmark all your editing progress in every file. If you liked Pendulum Chaos, pls do take a look at NTW too ;-)
Those pesky people over at Halloween land failed in their plan to stop Santa deliverying presents, but that doesn't mean he's out of the woods yet. He still needs to be guided back to the North Pole to gather the presents.
On his way he must avoid the evil minions, the bats, and deadly magic, whilst collecting as many gold coins as you can.
A great fun game for kids and adults alike.
