What was this geometric creature builder website?

Several years ago, I saw a website with a fun little flash or javascript applet thingy where you could build little tensegrity structure creatures, then have oscillating movements applied to the pieces, so that the structures would seem to "walk". I don't remember what it was called! From memory, one of the simpler structures looked sort of like this. What was it? Is it still online? [more inside]

Can you identify these pocket games from the early eighties?

Help me identify a toy! Around 1980 (in the northeastern United States) there was a line of small games contained within sealed plastic boxes approximately five inches long, two and half across, and perhaps half an inch thick (13 x 6 x 1cm, about the size of a pocket calculator back then). Many contained one or more small steel balls. Some, with flippers, took the form of a pinball or basketball game. Others were mazes or other puzzles. Some contained plastic beads floating in fluid. Some involved magnets. I had a bunch of these at one point but I cannot remember who made them or what they were called.
