Mind blowing physics engine demonstration

Thiago Costa has created a physics based demonstrations with Softimage’s ICE platform which can only be described as insane. This is probably not real-time, but we are wondering what it would be like to have this level of physics and particle effects in games.

Softimage, is a high-end 3D computer graphics application owned by Autodesk for producing 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling, and computer animation. The software is predominantly used in the film, video game and advertising industries for creating computer generated characters, objects, and environments.
