Thinking in systems
In a world filled with complex systems, Loopy serves as a tool for people to take their time understanding them.
The tool allows users to create interactive simulations to help people explain their ways of thinking.
Loopy has found a way for people to interact with simulations without complicated code or overused drag and drop. You can create your own or collaborate with other simulations already made on the site.
It is a great way to challenge yourself while learning how each system works.
Loopy encourages you to ask hypothetical questions to better understand the systems. The model consists of circles and arrows to remain uncomplicated. When you remix or interact with simulations that were made by other users, it is as if you are having a conversation via the simulations. Loopy describes this as “talking in systems” which makes the entire experience more impactful.
Myriad of uses
Though Loopy can be used as a fun way to exercise your brain, it also has practical implications. For instance, simulations can be embedded into blog posts, live lectures and presentations. You can also develop videos to further explain complex ideas.
This is especially useful for businesses who want to simplify their models when communicating with investors and consumers.
Simulations can be a fun way to illustrate your thoughts and support your ideas. Businesses can use Loopy to create collaborative activities for their employees to mess around with as well.
Anyone and everyone
The best part is that anyone can try out Loopy for free. On their site, you can develop your own simulations or adjust ones that have already been made.
At its core, Loopy is simulation software.
However, their goal is to give everyone the tools that they need to understand complex systems. This goes for both the creators and the viewers, who are all a part of the process.
