Nice game where you set a comet in motion amidst a set of planets fixed in space. Your objective: to place the comet thus, that it remains in motion till the blue timer bar runs off. I bet Newton would win this game every time if he played :)
Very addictive!

Lunar Lander

Here's a remake of a game that you might have already come across in your life.

Cool matchbox trick

Here is a nice little trick that you can try next time you have access to match boxes. Put two sticks with the matchbox to support a third string, with the black part touching each other. Then light up the black portion, to see the third match rising on it's own! See the video for better explanation...
