| The most common alternatives to real hands-on science are
experiments (Remote Laboratory), prerecorded real experiments (ranging
video sequencies not allowing interactive use to Interactive Screen
and different types of simulations (Virtual Laboratory). Usually
with real equipment as well as lack of cooperation is attributed to
standard simulations. Here we present a class of virtual experiments,
which allows to combine
the advantages of real experiments with those of computer simulations,
the number of workplaces is not limited in principle, and time and
place for performing
experiments can be chosen at will. We call these highly interactive
PHYSTOONS, because they are not based on digitized images of real
on cartoon like realistic drawings of laboratory devices. A PHYSTOON
is highly intuitive and mouse driven only. Operating virtual devices is
to using real ones.
