Hooke vs. Newton

rainbow spring

The springs in Sodaconstructor work using rules discovered by British scientist Robert Hooke (1635-1703), who found that the force a spring exerts is directly proportional to how much it extends. This is called Hooke's law (discovering a law of nature is a great way to be immortalised!). Hooke also invented the iris diaphragm in cameras, the universal joint used in motor vehicles, the balance wheel in a watch, was the originator of the word 'cell' in biology, helped develop the microscope and worked with Sir Christopher Wren in rebuilding London after the Great Fire of 1666. Not bad going really. He also had a famous feud with scientist Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), as Hooke felt that Newton had taken his ideas without giving him due credit. Interestingly Sodaconstructor uses Newton's laws of motion: the very ones discovered by Sir Isaac, so Hooke and Newton are working together now in Sodaconstructor at least.

Through an open window, just large enough to crawl through, you can see someone lying by a car screaming in agony.

There is also a couple eating in the next room, waiters hovering.
