  • Bullet Physics - Linux OpenCL

    Michael,

    I noticed something I missed in March. We've all been waiting on BP 3.0 for OSS OpenCL supported physics under linux. I noticed that ver 2.8 already has GPU support for its rigid body pipeline. They include some precompiled demonstration binaries which may be a nice addition to the Phoronix Test Suite.

    Take a peek

    I think the JavaScript build of BB is more impressive ;-)

      Sry, BB means "Black Berry" at my job, and means "Big Bang" when I associate it with Physics.. What is it an innitialism for?

        There was a Phoronix article about this a while ago. Now if OpenCL in JavaScript was possible, that would even be more aweome.

        (The project that allows for building to JS is this: https://github.com/kripken/emscripten/wiki. I almost crapped my pants when I first the BB engine running in a browser with WebGL...)

            Lol, that would mean that you could do folding@home or SETI by simply visiting the appropriate website.

            Neat.

              That could also mean instead of displaying ads content providers can waste your notebook battery by generating bitcoins when you visit their website.

              Not so neat.
