Unlimited detail website
It looks pretty ugly just now, there are several really patronising videos knocking around that cover all the details. It's using the point sprite (remember this?), or point cloud data as they've renamed it, method of rendering that's done without GPU acceleration.
It's a lot like raytracing or voxels.
Awesome stuff if it works. If.
I foresee problems when physics are thrown into the equation, any sort of real time interaction with the world, or animation of any type, for that matter. Still, it'll make life easy for 3D modellers who'll no longer have to worry about topology, displacement maps, baked occlusion, poly counts and so on.
