How does it work?

By manipulating the gravity slider the operator can choose to simulate planets that are more, or less massive than earth.

Moving the slider left of center causes air to flow out of the bottom of the puck to decrease friction and simulate lower gravitational forces.

Moving the slider right of center causes air to flow into the bottom of the puck to increase friction and simulate higher gravitational forces.

The Random button will randomly choose a planet to simulate. The user then must play with the GravBot to determine what planet is being simulated, and then guess using the slider.

The Play/Pause button will pause or resume the operation of the motor inside of the GravBot.
