    This is awesome!

    Found that link in the comments.

    Great find!

      Simply amazing...and exciting! Makes me think there's still a fun future for this technology.

        It doesn't look like it'll be implemented in games just yet. Wait a few years for the nVidia GeForce 88000, which will have no trouble.

          Looks purdy, but Siggraph means it's on Linux which means it's not on a computer game ever because only Microsoft Trusted Gaming will be allowed in the future (which is when MS patents all electronic representations of 0 and 1) and I doubt any of that is real-time rendered this decade. If it is I will clap once in honor of efficient coding.

          At this moment the Audience is preparing to key a reply about how of course this can't be done right now but someday... to which I precognitively respond that until games figure out how to handle a middle-managing AI -- something that can make the player avatar behave naturally without input and thus handle things like balancing on uneven terrain, objects, be able to be knocked down by bullets and scramble back to its feet in a natural and smoothly-animated way -- all this physics stuff is eye candy and wankery. Recent investigations into gravity grenades shows that for all of HL2's OMG HAWT physics, it still can't handle simple bursts of momentum on a player's avatar, at least without a scratch-coded implementation mod.

            Not to sound pessimistic...but...

            I'm not all too impressed. To be honest, the fire looked like crapppp.

              The comparison is between that fire and Half-Life 2 fire. It looks damn awesome.

                well, that may be true...but nobody else thinks this all looks...like too much? When, in the future, will the players be looking at little flames like this?

                    These flames in future games won't be the focus of the screen because of the "cool factor". Ideally, they'd essentially just be another prop on the stage, a minor detail to enhance the feel of realism.

                      I think it could do more than enhance the feel of realism. I think interesting new puzzles could be created if you had water that acted realistically as supposed to the crap they have now...

                        The glass of water was amazing. I'd give it a couple of years, but we will probably see this quality of graphics within 10 years. I wonder if these demos utilized one of those physics accelerator cards.

                          ya that looks very good but it will prolly take another new video card to take full advantage of the new software.... and if you read apophis's artical on the front page Phyx's has the card just for it :P

                            Truly? What about when players are equipped with flamethrowers (as they have been in the past) and set about igniting their fellow gamers on fire? With a pinch of imagination, this one effect alone - and it is just an effect, after all, that can be scaled up or down - could go a long, looong way in gaming circles. Muhahaha!! :icon26:

                              Just imagine how much MORE fun Halo would've been if the flamethrower looked real!
