Video: Some Very Impressive Computer-Generated Falling Dirt and Flying Neckties

Lagoa Multiphysics

A new demonstration of a particle physics simulator may be the most amazing video of dirt I've ever watched. And it's not even real dirt!

Lagoa Multiphysics, the software creation of Thiago Costa, allows for highly detailed, precisely tunable physics simulations of such phenomena as falling shovelfuls of moist earth, buckets of water being tossed at innocent bunnies, silk sheets crumpling and sliding, and unsavory-looking wobbly extrusions of an undefined plasticky substance that oozes and shivers.

Next week, we'll be at SIGGRAPH 2010, bringing you more graphics amazingness.
