NVIDIA has launched a new platform called Reality Server which is a combination of GPUs and software that streams interactive, photorealistic 3D app,ications to any Internet connected PC, Laptop, Netbook or smartphone.
The RealityServer platform is made up of an NVIDIA Tesla GPU based server which runs the new RealityServer software.
“This is one giant leap closer to the goal of real-time photorealistic visual computing for the masses,” said Dan Vivoli, senior vice president, NVIDIA. “mental images fully embraced the concept of GPU co-processing to enable Interactive photorealism anywhere, any time – something that was science fiction just yesterday.”
“Everyone should experience the web the way they experience the world, in 3D,” said Rolf Herken, CEO and CTO of mental images. “RealityServer offers extraordinary opportunities and far-reaching implications for businesses and consumers, enabling us to interact with 3D content in the form and manner that our brains expect.”
The RealityServer Platform will be available from the 30th of November, although there are not many applications for it as yet, although NVIDIA have said that it will be free to no commercial applications.Filed Under: Technology News
