So, apparently this company named Euclideon is claiming that they have a graphics engine which uses virtual atoms instead of polygons.
Let that simmer in your mind for a bit. Atoms.
I won’t go into the specifics of it all, because the info is in this video…
This blew my mind, especially the part about scanning real objects. This revolutionizes character creation. If scanners could be created for average consumers, you could actually be yourself in a game. 3d concepts can be sculpted and immediately imported into the game.
I don’t have the technical expertise to effectively assess the potential of this technology, but I don’t need to be an expert to say that this will surely change the way we look at games (literally).
