Catch and throw

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Catch and throw is a technology used (e.g., in the Caterpillar) to adjust the timing of a glider by turning it into a stationary object using one interaction, and then later restoring it using a second interaction. The interations are caused by passing objects which are not otherwise affected. The direction of the glider is not usually changed.

Here is an example where a glider is turned into a boat by the first LWSS, and is then restored by the remaining spaceships:
