As interested as I am in supporting Squeak-based products, I can tell
you that the competition for my money is Cosmic Blobs  The marketing and web site is very slick,
it is reasonably priced, and I am thinking that it may be a superior
technology in some respects.  Although I may buy the English version
of Plopp anyway, if and when it becomes available.  Has anyone done
anything with real-time metaballs modeling in Squeak?

As for an English name for Plopp, how about:

3D Playground, Kids 3D Sketching, Swell, Billow, No Huff No Puff,
Balloon 3D, Bear Bolster, 3D Pump, Pooch, Inflation Creation ...
