Incredible Physics Engine Yields Some Seriously Jaw-Dropping Dirt

http://vimeo.com/13457383

A column of dirt slamming down onto some steps. A sheet of fabric slipping off a sphere. Some water sloshing against a wall. In the real world: pretty unremarkable physics. When produced with the Lagoa Multiphysics engine: jaw-droppingly amazing physics. Version 1.0 of the engine was recently completed by Thiago Costa and allows control of:
- High friction granular materials
- Incompressible fluids
- Elastic structures
- Plastic deformations & more...

Ugh, I can only imagine the cost of the graphic card(s) to run a game that would utilize this.




EDIT: No vimeo auto embed?

Not to mention the wattage and heat output.
