Exploring Poncelet's Porism

Interactive dynamical model of Poncelet's Porism for conics. It's known that exact conditions for an n-gon to be bicentric are very complicated, even for circles. http://www.mathworld.wolfram.com/PonceletsPorism.html With this applet one can find approximate solution with appropriate accuracy and see how it's work.
