MIT’s amazing “Assist Sketch Understanding System” basically “allows an engineer to sketch a mechanical system as you would on paper, and then enables them to interact with the design as a mechanical system.” See it in action after the jump.

… for example by seeing a simulation of the drawing. We have built an early incarnation of such a tool, called ASSIST, which allows a user to sketch simple mechanical systems and see simulations of her drawings in a two-dimensional kinematic simulator
