Juggling Animation and Tutorial Software for PCs


What is JuggleKrazy?

It's a computer program that will animate juggling patterns. It comes with lots and lots of patterns so you can see what people mean when they talk about Cascade, Fountain, Shower, Mills Mess, Rubenstein's Revenge, Burke's Barrage, etc.

As well as being able to view the patterns that come with it, you can also create your own.

You can get the balls to leave trails behind them, you can speed up the animation or slow it down, even single step it or run it backwards. You can increase and decrease gravity. Want to know what it's like to juggle 15 balls on the moon? Er, perhaps not. But JuggleKrazy could show you if you did!

Want to know what it would look like if that one particular throw went over the top instead of underneath? Tell JuggleKrazy to do it for you.

Do you have a pattern that you want to share with others but is too complicated to describe? Put it into JuggleKrazy and send the file to your friends. You can even write your own tutorials on your favourite tricks.

JuggleKrazy can even teach a beginner how to juggle!

JuggleKrazy is Easy to Learn and Use!

JuggleKrazy has a mouse-driven graphical user interface and comes with:

These will tell you all you need to know about the many ways of creating and editing your own patterns and making the program demonstrate them.

But why take our word for it? Download the shareware version (see How to Get Hold of JuggleKrazy below) and try JuggleKrazy out for yourself!

How Can You Describe a Juggling Pattern?

JuggleKrazy understands both the widely used "SiteSwap" notation and Ladder Diagrams to describe juggling patterns. If you're not familiar with these, don't worry! SiteSwap is clearly explained in the online help and in an online tutorial (registered version only). Both SiteSwap and ladder diagrams are explained in full in the manual that accompanies the registered version. Yeah, we know no-one reads manuals, but if you're ever really desperate for something to do...

If you want to find out more NOW, check out our Introduction To SiteSwap Web page.
