These PhysX (fluid simulations) are making us thirsty

While we're not exactly prepared to call this stuff water, per se, the fluid dynamics on display in the latest PhysX demonstration are quite impressive nonetheless.

When we first got our hands on Puppy Punch Productions' Colour Bind at GDC this year, it looked much like it does now, in full, ready-for-release form. That's the thing about Colour Bind – it's not a feat in visual representation, but the ideas behind its physics-puzzle gameplay are outsta...
