My idea is inspired by window snap to side function in Linux.
What if you could calculate with snap to value functions in mathematics. I guess that it should exist because a snap function acts like a metal to a magnet. I mean it exists in the world.
So the idea is that when the object is sufficiently close to a criteria it snaps into place.
The window snap to side function is a valuable feature of a window manager maybe it can prove useful in other places. Maybe there are also snap to shape functions of objects. So to ?simplify a simulation you have snap to position and snap to shape functions.
