Finally it is there (but probably not the intention of the programmer..) :

Computer Poi

What we would need now is a second mouse, a decent background and a 3D patch!

Thx to snoop from www.poi-board.de.vu who found it!

enjoy

heh that thingy's funny - abit to bouncy though...or is it just me? juggle
ooooh i can kinda do isolations...almost.... i can get it going continuously with my right hand (centre of rotation is in middle of the chain) and kindof with the left hand... get a few circles then loose it then back again for a few more circles. gimma abit longer rolleyes
can't do any proper tricks with them yet... apart from an 'isolated buzzsaw' weave - but that's only 1 isolated spin >_<
getting there!

PoiBoxII: thanks for posting this. It's very useful for understanding how to manipulate poi using different motions, for example, ovals instead of strict circles smile
