fluid simulation is not the only use of the techniques they are showing, they already showed some other demos of soft and rigid physics simulation using similar approach, so this technique cover much more than just fluid simulation, and yes those demos are all amazing.

As awesome as it is, I can't help but thinking there's a better use for the tech as far as actual games are concerned. For starters, try to imagining simulating enough of those seed-particles for something on the scale of Skyrim. *boggle* That's a long ways off still. At least as far as actual volumes of liquids are concerned. Special effects based on fluid dynamics (fire for example) would probably be ... incredible.But...I could see this type of tech being [I][B]far[/B][/I] more impressive were it re-purposed for a feature that games and real-time simulations have never been capable of doing. Fully-dynamic outfits via physics-enabled objects using a derivative of this technique. We're talking full-body cloth-sims. I mean, realistically speaking, the two problems are very virtually identical. Surface tensions in liquids equates to tensile strength in fabrics.Taking that yet another step forward though...a character's "skin" could actually be "modeled" in the same fashion around an actual skeleton, complete with muscles. Hehehe...characters with actual *volume* to their bodies...not just a hollow shell.
