Euclideon Say "Unlimited Detail" Is Not Dead


You might remember that a year ago we posted about the Unlimited Detail graphics engine, which is apparently based on a system called "point cloud data", which is a step beyond polygon rendering into a miraculous world of infinite geometry. The claims caused quite a stir, but then the technology promptly vanished. The claims that it was vapourware all along are being addressed by a new video from the company behind the idea, Euclideon, in which they claim to be back, Back, BACK! And demonstrate it with a new video.

The new video zooms in to show individually-rendered grains of dirt. The claims get more astonishing from there.
