Polygon counting a thing of the past with this new technology? Insanely high detail maps could be in the near future!

    I can't help but look at this skeptically.

    Same... but that's amazing if it's real. I'm kind of scratching my head over how the particles would translate themselves into a seamless flat surface. Plus I don't really understand how using a million little particles to create a plane is easier on the computer when you could use 3 points...

    My only issue is...it's nice that they can do this..and for non interactive graphics it could be HUGE. How exactly will this translate into videogames though? Especially when you start adding in things like physics engines...

    Being as their "WEBSITE is down due to all the traffic" even though there are only around a million hits on the videos, as well as their email being down and them using gmail as an interim address, I am going to guess that they are a fake company. It is awesome if it isn't though.

    Hopefully they'll get this software commercially available about the same time holographic TV's and monitors are available.
    That would be so awesome I'd probably get back into gaming.
