I'm really flabbergasted. Great presentation.

cool. I want one.

Very cool. You can download it here:

Although you'll need a tablet PC. Like we all have one of those
laying around. Your guess is as good as mine why they don't have
a version for windows or OS/X. Hmm, could it be because this is a
collaboration between MIT and Microsoft?

DIY, kind of:

Available since 2004 for free from Microsoft Research (you can get the Application and the Sourcecode); It's called "Microsoft Physics Illustrator for Tablet PC"

The whiteboard; well... a digital one...

@Ole
yes, a cool toy .... unfortunatelly not able to create a "real" looping, but like it.

The "pen" looks like Mimio.

I am reminded of Doug Engelbart's "Sketchpad" system. Very similar to MacigPaper, it lets you draw rough shapes directly on the screen with a special pen, transforming them into geometrical objects. Sketchpad doesn't have entertaining physics simulation like MagicPaper, but it has astonishingly powerful functions to modify the objects on screen in real-time, and it significantly predates MagicPaper: Sketchpad is from 1962.

You can see Sketchpad and the very first hypertext (as in HTML) implementation in action in this video hosted by Alan Kay.

WOW! With this software I can finally finish the design of my perpetual motion machine!
