Developing Systems Thinking Can Be Fun

It is a complex and messy world out there.

But sometimes having the right tool can make exploring this complexity kind of fun.

Loopy is a tool for thinking in systems created by Nicky Case. It allows you to quickly sketch system components (as circles) and their interactions (as arrows) and press play to simulate how a system behaves. In no time at all, you will be experimenting with negative and positive feedback loops, testing predictions, and, most importantly, having fun playing with your system creations.

Curious about how to get started?

Watch the video below for a quick tutorial on how to use Loopy.
