NVIDIA Project Kal-El: Glowball Demo

NVIDIA explains in this demo the advantages of Kal-El (Tegra), NVIDIA’s new processor for mobile devices that combines a 4-core CPU and a 12-core GeForce GPU on the same chip. The demo shows a brilliant lit, bouncing ball. The ball serves as the light source. As it rolls, it casts its effect on different objects. This shows off the power of true dynamic lighting, rendered in real-time with physics. The movements are calculated using physics and are simulated across Kal-El’s four CPU cores.

You can find more details about the demo HERE and more information about Kal-El HERE.

    Is this downlaodable I did not see a link in the address given above, oh also can it run on a regular PC

    I like the cool use of textured light mapping.

    Maybe a GeeXLab demo is in order?

    Tegra contains an ARM CPU and the demo runs under Android OS on a smartphone or tablet, i.e. it wont work on a “regular PC” (unless you are an NVIDIA developer who has an emulator for Tegra 3).
