    The fixed joint was the first joint covered in this lesson. In the lesson I used it to hold the top cube up while the bottom cube was hanging via a spring joint. It can be used for keeping things attached to others or for just keeping something floating in the air. Joints can be broken which can be fun for physics based interactions.
