RE: Unlimited Detail
they're doing this since many years, but their website http://www.euclideon.com/ is still under construction, I'm not sure if it's a serious technology, or just fake. anyway, it's old now, they haven't made any progress/news since many months.

Once they add in animations/Physics/proper lighting and more essentials, I'll be impressed.

But until then: Meh. I don't like their attitude at all.

As they said: it's not going to be published untill it is ready (like kids, stealing cookies from the oven, saying that they don't taste, while they are not even ready yet.)

In time, I hope/expect to see great things from these guys.

RE: Unlimited Detail
Well, in 3 to 5 years, when this thing is finally released, I'm sure people will believe them, though the whole tech will be less impressuve by then as all the other techs will not stand still during this time.

I think he makes a fine point in his critic of polygon graphics... It is old tech everyone still clings to because developing something new costs loads of time and money (and noone wants to spend those if they can get around it).

What he fails to see though is the typical thing you have with "specialists": some of the newer examples of polygonal graphics he shows in the video (is it the new carmack title?) are, thanks to bump mapping, looking really nice. How many people will even notice that this actually is low poly graphics? How many of these will care?

He certainly struck the wrong chord in the first video, as poly graphics, as it is today, is more than good enough for 99% of gamers.

Its a different aspect he only mentions in a second interview video, that made this whole thing interesting to me: that the scenes he showed was all rendered by software on the CPU. If true, that means you could get much better graphics at 60 FPS stable out of a low power notebook. Thats really impressive... If its true, and they deliver more than just videos before I die of old age wink

I heard rumors that they have a legit source of funding, but it certainly has been in the works for a long time now. Nothing more than rumors and the odd demo though.

According to Wikipedia, it's set to be released in 2012, supposedly. If this works as well as they claim, it will be pretty sweet. I wonder what kind of impact it will have on the hardware market?

Doubt it will affect much of the market the first few years at least not until more engines follow the same tech pursuit. The market is still controlled by the bigger known engines.

RE: Unlimited Detail
IF it got released, (suspicious about these sorts of things, and there have been very few updates from the company in years) I'm sure it would become very popular very quickly.

They do need to step up their game though, it looks like there are some other guys developing their own voxel engines. Ex.

RE: Unlimited Detail
And yet they love claiming they're the only ones making a proper voxel engine.
Their attitude just makes me want to puke.
