Nvidia open-source PhysX to help AI and robotics research

As if trying to grow superhumanly intelligent minds inside grey boxes and wires weren't dangerous enough, now people want to teach them that the only physical impact they can have on the world is being an arsehole knocking around anything not nailed down. Nvidia have open-sourced their PhysX, physics simulation engine, with the primary goal of assisting research into AI, robotics, and self-driving cars. Look…

Killing Floor 2 Demonstrates PhysX Flex Tech Using Guts

Demos for new physics technologies usually look like Bodyform commercials, with gentle blue water sloshing around and lots of smooth rippling fabric. That's how Nvidia have shown their new unified particle-based physics tech PhysX Flex so far - lots of rubbery water balloons flopping about and leaking blue wet. Pssh, it won't look like that in the games we actually play.Killing Floor 2 [official site]…

Making A Splash: Nvidia’s Real-Time Fluid Physics

I feel like I should apologise for the headline but Nvidia call their middleware physics engine PhysX, for crying out loud. 'Making a splash' is almost Nabokovian in comparison. You may recall recent advances in convincing/crazed coiffures and I care about that about as much as I care about the latest floppy-fringed hair fashions in the real world. Not a jot. Fluid physics though? Ever…

Nvidia Uses Hawken To Show Off PhysX Clevers

Handsome Hawken is ever more handsome - or at least that's the intention - thanks to implementation of Nvidia's PhysX tech. The new trailer (Below) shows how PhysX improves particles and debris in the world, creating effect that is partly awesome and partly, well, gaudy. I get that this stuff is super clever, mathematically speaking, but some of the particle effects just seem over the…

87 Bazillion New Clips Of Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 will have guns. Of all the things in the entire universe I'd be absolutely, un-hesitantly comfortable staking my life on, that'd rank only behind "Texas is warm" and "Borderlands 2 will have lands." Gearbox, though, wants to set its more-than-87-bazillion guns apart from the rest of the industry's comparatively tasteful collection of 63 trillion, so it's attempting to infuse real personality into brands this…

PhysX-on-a-GeForce: Next Week

You may remember Kieron doing science a few weeks back about NVIDIA's CUDA system - clever trickery that allows a GPU to perform processing feats other than pixel-pushing. There's a lot of real-world algorithm-crunching applications for it, but of most interest to gamers is that it can make your GeForce 8, 9 or 200-series card behave like a PhysX board. NVIDIA bought out PhysX makers…

Music Is My Hot PhysX

And because I like my shout-out to lovefoxx strap for this piece so much, I'm going to re-use it here. The most influential man in British videogames journalism, Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell, showed the sheer extent of his influentialitude by making me trot off and actually cover a hardware event. Me! In this case, NVIDIA talking about their near-future plans involving - basically - allowing you…

LOL@PhysX

I've got an Ageia PhysX card sat around somewhere, a piece of hardware about which I wasn't entirely complimentary a while back. I don't use it because a) there's yet to be a PhysX-enabled game which I've wanted to play for any reasonable length of time and b) it's one more furiously spinning fan in a PC that I can already hear humming like the…
