    "Physics will offer a host of advanced features including universal collision detection, rigid-body dynamics, soft-body dynamics, fluid dynamics, smart particle systems, clothing simulation, soft-body deformation with tearing"

    --HOLY FUCK!!! Thats the kind of stuff that my current computer can render @ like 5fps!
