Holy cow. I can't believe that is even possible from just typing code. It looks like an alien language to me how can I ever hope to know what I'm doing and write that stuff myself? Are you using some kind of graphical interface to arrive at that code or something, or are you just doing math stuff all day? But please tell me where I can learn to do what you just did, and is it possible to make the 2D interactive object you guys just made into a 3D one to also express volume not just area? I mean I know it's possible theoretically but is it too advanced for an average human mind to write down in code? How long did it take you to write that code because to a newbie like me it looks like it'd take two weeks (it was the first thing I used mathematica for, took me forever to realize shift+enter makes it compute then I jumped out of my seat)
