Alias Cloth Technology Demonstration for the Cell Processor


This technology demonstration shows a prototype of a next generation cloth solver algorithm. It is a proof-of-concept that demonstrates the potential for interactivity and realistic display of cloth behaviors. The demonstration shows independent simulations being added, one by one, with no degradation in performance. Each cloth tumbles within a cube, in some cases with pinned constraints or objects, to demonstrate natural folding and correct behaviour in response to forces such as gravity and collisions. Each simulation can be manipulated interactively while the others continue to tumble. The demonstration runs in a client-server configuration where the cloth simulation computations are executed on one or more Cell processors running the Linux® operating system (the server) and the results of those computations are sent to an Apple® Power Mac® G5 client for display.PDF
