    A recent issue of Scientific American had an article by some folk who've done quite a bit of work doing just that! I don't have the edition to hand (nor am I able to check it on the internet); you could go to their website and see for yourself perhaps?

    As to doing it yourself on your own PC, it all depends on the level of detail and accuracy that you want to attain :eek: Can you be a bit more specific please?
