here's the two minute long release video for the ICE plugin called "emNewton2".
This new (and rather nerdy) plugin is an implementation of Sir Isaac Newton's "Law of universal Gravity". The main difficulty of the implementation was to achieve reasonable simulation times even though each particle attracts each other particle (that's the evil O(n^2) thing).
As usual the main reason for the animation was to test the stability of the plugin.
At the end of the animation is some information about the amount of particles and the simulation times.
The entire simulation and rendering was done on a single workstation (1 x Intel i7, 12 Gig RAM).
