The user produces a new basis \(\{\mathbf{u}\), \(\mathbf{v}\}\) for \(\mathbf{R}^2\) by moving points on a plane, and can then move a point around \(\mathbf{R}^2\) by altering the \(\mathbf{u}\) and \(\mathbf{v}\) coordinates of the point. It takes some practice with the application to figure out what each slider alters and how they relate to each other.

Works nicely once I figured out how to use it?
