If one could calculate the maximum amount of data one could display or render on a particular machine and had an infinite model that displayed infinite detail that only loaded the particular amount of data that one particular machine could properly display during real time or rendering for output....then infinite detail could be possible - or almost infinite memory stored inside living organic material will provide the almost infinite detail humanity is after.

My Google alert for euclidean returned an advert for a developer, maybe they can't figure it out and need some help or maybe they do know a thing or two. Time will tell.

unlimited detail from euclidean

We all want it and we all are still waiting for it. But you know what. One thing thats not unlimited is my time on earth, and that im quite shure about.

OK then.  Wow!, of sorts.  Saw them last year, freeky marketing last year, slightly improved this year, seems they have had such negativity and perhaps have had to fight so hard that they forget to leave that attitude at the door when communicating with the rest of the world.

Aside from that reaction, looks more than impressive, so usually is, but who knows, it's made by our cousins from across the ditch so must be alright  :-D.

Nothing of the practicality and real world use, its technology, not sure what it's supposed to be competing against or providing, but if it's going to be the next big leap then wish them all the best,  in any case can only be good for my 486 PC  :D

Littlemeister it sounds rather tounge-in-cheek to me. It has taken them a year to build a rock and a tree. Sorta like me when I first got Sketchup.

they have been working on the technology behind the tree and so on... and only put 3 weeks into this "showcase". But as we all know... To jusst make an engine that shows Static things is not the same thing as making it have lights, moving objects and so on.
But They SHURE HAVE the best VISION out there! thats almost an Unlimited VISION! XD

It is something that will come...or needs to come. My son who seems to know everything "gaming" says that not much has changed in 10 years.....makers seem to be reaching a bit now for an audience.

My guess is they still have a long way to go before they can license that technology to ACT-3D and others. What any tech in the 3d realtime-arena seems to be aiming at is credible looking solutions. To achieve this, much more than a proper level of detail seems needed. Reflection, refraction, absorption and combinations of optical phenomena like caustics come to my mind, but are clearly absent from Euclideon´s tech demos.
So let´s have reflections first in Lumion, and who feels like needing voxels on the spot can play Comanche-3D meanwhile  ;)

What I would like is a software that Is aimed for Casual Archtitects. Not hardcore Cad/3d nerds that do objects everyday in 3d softwares. I would also want this software aimed for Architects thats more leaning toward exploring and making the project from start to finish without over 100 ppl and 100 softwares being used for one single Building.

hope hope hope

Unfortunatly as great an environment as Lumion creates the mesh is what makes a good finnished rendering stand out and that can be painful for some. Lumion is not going to build our models for us.
