many of these features reminded me of what @DanielPiker does with Kangaroo and some physics simulation, like dragging stuff in real time around and have them interact with objects in real time.
Yes, I’ve seen the launch video too. They’ve got some really nice features. The object placement would be a super useful thing to have. But then I would want it without having to run Grasshopper.
If Grasshopper would have reliable tools to output properly texture mapped geometry than it could be used to make procedural stuff for visualisation, games, movies etc… I wish it has.
