Virtual Ouija Board

The Virtual Ouija Board was developed as an example of the type of animation that can be created through the use of Bézier curves in Director. Click on the board to activate it, and then click anywhere on the board, or type in letters or numbers, and the planchette will move from place to place, based on a semi-random algorithmic path. The code for this project was published in The Lingo User's Journal in September, 1996. If you're interested in the Director source file, download the MacOS (85K .sit) or Windows (98K .zip) versions.
