Fun with Portals and Physics (97 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 19-July-2006  16:47:32 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Sciby spotted this mind-bending video from Valve, demonstrating Portals:


From there I found the site fun-motion.com, which is a blog about physics-based games. I'm interested in knowing how people feel about this whole Physics Acceleration thing, which has become quite a buzzword lately. PhysX cards are here and soon we'll see GPU-powered physics acceleration from NVIDIA and ATI (recent info here and here). But, to be honest, I'm finding it hard to get excited about the technology and I don't really see what it can bring to the gaming experience that can't be provided by a fast CPU and GPU. Let me know your thoughts, in the Comments thread for this news post.
