Foutan Board Simulator

Dear Prof Wolfgang and professors, I have a request for a Foutan Board.


The physics is a bit hard (path maze solver ? example http://www.primaryobjects.com/maze/)for me as I have been only able to compare the on state of the switches and decide if the Bulb A,B,C,D should light up or not. It seems my method is not elegant so maybe the community could be interested to developed this simulator.

There is another realistic simulator. It can be accessed from this website. goo.gl/J3y7f3

but the problems are:

  1. Not appealing nor user friendly for students to use.
  2. The brightness of bulbs are also not easily comparable
attached is my work in progress source code, if it can be built on.
