Corona Geek #148 – Creating Motorized Wheeled Carts Using Pivot Joints

Corona Geek #148 – Creating Motorized Wheeled Carts Using Pivot Joints

Corona Geek

On today’s Corona Geek Hangout we learned how to build a motorized wheeled cart using Corona’s built-in physics engine and pivot joints. We explored why you should consider adding display objects to a group and how torque affects different parts of a wheeled physics simulation. We also explored ideas for using a wheeled cart in a game. Download the code from today’s discussion to play with the examples.

If you missed last week’s Hangout on creating rag doll characters, be sure to watch the code walk through. We talked about using pivot and touch joints to create complex structures that other objects and players can interact with.
