From the creators of Tunatic, Ask the DJ, BPMer, and AccuBeatMix, Wildbits presents an interesting utility called "Gravité". Gravité is a funny add-on that makes the Mac OS drag-and-drop feature "gravitized".

"Gravité makes Macintosh Drag & Drop look and feel more like the real thing. When Gravité is installed, dragged items (Finder icons, image clips) behave according to laws of mechanics such as gravity, inertia and friction."

Features present in the Control Panel:

Toggled by Caps Lock: If this is checked, you can activate or deactivate Gravité through Caps Lock (without opening the control panel).
In Finder Only: Check this if you only want to swing Finder icons.
Off Under Mac OS X: Under Mac OS X, areas around the dragged item may not appear properly when you drag items from the "Classic" environment to other applications. Check this box if you wish Gravité to work under Mac OS 9 but not under Classic.
Gravity: This controls the gravity field intensity.
Mouse Friction: This controls the intensity of the friction force at the end of the arrow.
Air Friction: This controls the intensity of the air friction force.
Sounds: This allows sounds to be played.
Free Flight: If this is checked, the object can be dropped by pressing the ctrl key and releasing the mouse button. The object will fly freely until you release the ctrl key.
Quality: This controls the display quality (anti-aliasing level). Better quality may yield poorer animation if your machine isn't fast enough.
Solid Drag: If this is checked, the dragged object will appear solid, not transparent.

There's no OS X version, but it can work in the "Classic" layer.
