He demonstrates it in a zenful YouTube video, where he creates devices like cars and piston engines in seconds using simple shapes. Nice interface!

You have the engine and the assets, or something equivalent, and you don’t care about realism at all, just about wildly outrageous physics situations. (Via Ben Mattes.)
