Visualizing gravity through Einstein’s general relativity: A Swift Playground, Hanjie Liu (Hollis)

For this year’s WWDC student scholarship submission, I wrote a Swift Playground that simplifies and visualizes the gravitational effect of masses in the context of general relativity. I’ll demo the interactive visualization, show how a learner can code on iPad to change the behavior of the simulation, and walk through the technologies I used to build this playground.
