"Crank is a realtime graphics demo developed for NVIDIA. The demo showcases several NVIDIA technologies such as:
Crank was commissioned by NVIDIA to promote Fermi - NVIDIA's latest brand of GPU architecture, and used during the opening keynote at the 2010 GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California.
This application was devloped in C++, using DirectX10 for rendering. The demo contains simulations of rigid bodies and a rendering of a 3D-version of the Koch Snowflake fractal.
Unleashing the massive parallel computing power in NVIDIA's new GeForce 400-series, the demo showcases an unprecedented display of realtime graphics and physics simulation."
