Last year, a company named Euclideon from Australia, came out with Unlimited Detail Technology showing infinite point cloud data being run in real-time using only software. Instead of using polygons, they said they could use atoms. They had very little to show for it, especially since processing this amount of detail was questionable at best. Now, after a year of work, they have released what they have and it is amazing.
It’s been a busy year, and all is going very well; we only have 9 people working here, but will be hiring a few more soon. We also have another piece of technology that isn’t graphics, but does something game related that’s also pretty clever, but we’ll keep that secret for now.
They will soon make a developer’s kit and release it out to the gaming companies.
I. Can’t. WAIT! OMG I AM IN TEH FUTURES!!!

On Netflix instant watch, Scorched, a 2003 indy film is available for viewing. Starring Alicia Silverstone, Rachael Leigh Cook, Woody Harrelson, and John Cleese. Check out the Netflix summary:
Three employees of a bank located in a small desert town all make separate plans to rob the bank on the same weekend — unbeknownst to the others.
Same old chestnut of great minds think alike. Now, one of my favorite scenes is a game of Dungeons & Dragons in which Schmalley (Cook) decides to be a rogue with 14 intelligence and can speak multiple languages.
Once again I want to play DnD! Once again, I realize somehow I actually don’t have enough friends in Chicago to make this happen.
Anyway, this movie is worth a watch. I really enjoy watching different stories and how they end up interacting with each other. Everyone has an agenda, mostly stemming from the same a-hole boss, except for Harrelson’s issue which involves a duck. A duck.
I give this movie 4 out of 5 ducks. *QUACK!*
