Never assume that Leonardo Da Vinci’s doodles are meaningless. That, at least, is the takeaway of a new study out of the University of Cambridge, which shows that a page of Leonardo’s scribbled notes from 1493—previously dismissed as “irrelevant” by art historians—is actually the first written demonstration of the…
Watch as Franklin completely breaks GTA V’s missions with nothing but an intense ragdoll.
We’ve seen video games nail cloth physics, hair physics, and even water physics. Penis physics, though? That’s mostly a new frontier.
Spilling a little milk is worth it—at least, if you're looking for a good particle-based simulation.
Watch as one player glides through all of Los Santos...on a Scorcher mountain bike. He just keeps going and going!
"In space, no one can hear you scream." Thanks to 1979's hit Alien, that maxim's been part of the popular consciousness for a while now, but there's countless films and movies that just don't seem to get it.
Nine months after release and Grand Theft Auto V is still pregnant with ridiculously impressive stunt potential. In the latest from Nomad Union, absolute insanity happens.
Every time game technology makers talk material physics, they pull out the old "shattering glass" demo. Now there's finally a game about it.
The latest patch for Assassin's Creed IV on PC added support for some fancy PhysX particle effects, which includes smoke. Lots of smoke.
Yes, most games have never been great at depicting realistic jyggle physics. It's not the best situation, but at this point, many of us are used to that. The breast physics on Ryse, though? I don't even know what is going on there.
First we had mind-blowing water simulation. Now we can add another delightfully realistic simulation to the mix: snow.
The original Senran Kagura was created because designer Kenichiro Takaki thought it would be a good idea to use the 3DS to look at breasts in 3D. Thrilled with the results, he made a sequel, and now that sequel is coming to North America this fall. Oh boy.
For those of you who saw the first 6 minutes and 38 seconds of the new Evangelion movie, you were treated to scenes of a space battle involving giant biological humanoid… things (the creators at Gainax have emphatically stated that Evas are NOT robots or mechs and should not be called as such). The whole spectacle…
If you've ever thought, hey, video game car crashes are good, but not perfect, maybe you should take a look at this physics demonstration from BeamNG, which shows cars crumpling in such a realistic manner I can hear the safety glass crashing through my speakers.
This is what happens when you plug the physics system of truck sim Rigs of Rods into Crytek's CryEngine3: car crashes so nice you can watch them over and over and over.
Galileo discovered the language of nature. Einstein questioned the color of rainbows. Today's physicists ponder the vertical acceleration and horizontal velocity of an angry bird in flight.
Cell phone owners from all walks of life have flocked to popular, affordable mobile game Angry Birds for its bite-sized…
I'm a bit of a physics hobbyist. That doesn't mean that I understand or can even converse in the language of motion, but I love reading about it.
Yesterday, physicists announced the discovery of a strange anomaly, one that cannot easily be explained by our current understanding of particle physics. We examine what's really going on here, and why we all may have missed the really exciting discovery.
