David also demonstrated his VR system with a molecular dynamics engine using the MMFF94 force field and two buckyballs that could be independently and simultaneously manipulated by two people:

Thankfully, no one threw up, fell over, or tripped off the stage! And everyone who tried it was impressed at how easy it was to manipulate the molecules and interact with the simulation.
