Scene tag

Uses lasers and scripting. Won't work in Phun.

There are no controls for this scene. Balancing is done automatically.

Watch Matt use his PID feedback control like balancing skills to balance a spoon on his nose. This is true balancing. The spoon is not attached to his nose. You can stop the scene, put the spoon on his forehead, and he will still balance it. Remove the spoon and he will go spastic. If working correctly, then its about as exciting as watching paint dry.

Note: I just tried this on another computer, and to my horror, it didn't work. I readjusted from a value of 70 to a value of 30 and it worked OK. If Matt is going into spasms, then reduce If he is moving too slow to catch up with the spoon, then increase Meanwhile, I will look into making the scene computer independent. When I do, I will revise the phz and remove this note.

P.S.: Scene has been revised. Should work OK without adjustment. Please give feedback.
