Some important tools:

If you haven’t already, you owe it to yourself to check out Karsten Schmidt (Toxi)’s ToxicLibs and Dan Shiffman’s PBox2D (+link) libraries for Processing. These tools have significantly boosted peoples’ abilities to make interesting stuff over the past year. Box2d libraries also exist for OpenFrameworks.
