Hi VMDL-ers...

After a really really long lapse, we are starting up development with VMDL again... and rebranding it as "Elegant Atoms".

There are lots of little bugs and legacy things that make the programs look a little old (like small screens) and a poor system for storing labs and movies and, well if I go on you won't download... basically, we have LOTS of content, but it is going to be communicated better.

We are going to do some development over the next year or so and, hopefully, some of you will use this in your classes.

VMDL has a lot going for it. The particle interactions are REAL! These are all real, honest, research-grade simulations. The electronic measurements we can take of the systems are enormous and tell a lot. And Water has some really cool 3D graphics.

What's going to happen is that SMD, Universal, and Water are all going to be integrated into one program under the "Elegant Atoms" branding.

All the really interesting simulations you can do will all be at your fingertips and more accessible. There will be a control interface that will allow you to build custom simulations. And things like DNA unzipping, protein folding, first or second order reactions, burning/combustion, osmosis, lipids, soaps, brownian motion, alloys, nucleation, solvation, crystals, Archimede's Principle, sound waves, viscosity, catalysis, REDOX reactions, heat capacity, enthalpy, heat and work, and more will all be beautiful.
