Wow, physics aren't as complex as graphics? You get my vote for most ill-informed post this year.
They are not.
The mathematics of Newtonian physics is incredibly simple. A 20 year old solar powered calculator has enough power to calculate the change in velocity, in all three spacial directions, as a function of time, mass, gravity, and air resistance; more then 60 times a second.
Computers are super at basic math like that.
To represent 3D images on the screen is just as simple math on the hardware level, in reality; it just takes a vast large more of those simple calculations.Alternating Logo
