David McCullough: Americans in Paris

This video was made to test out a relativistic version of Direct Coulomb Summation and is intended to be displaying fields of different moving charge configurations. Coulomb’s Law is well defined and also that inverse square fields propagate at the speed of light is well known. Hence why not put both into the same equation. In general, the video uses Coulomb's law to compute an observational cube of data. The dataset is then sent to a ray tracer which produces the images in the video

We here at GAMBIT loved the panel so much that we begged for a command performance here at MIT. Coming back from that original panel are Ichiro Lambe (Founder and President of Dejobaan Games, LLC), Scott Macmillan (Founder and President of Macguffin Games), Eitan Glinert (Founder and President of Fire Hose Games) and new to
