So, in phase 1, we're just getting judged on how well we write? I have an actual game physicsengine that I've worked hard on. It can simulate particle fluidsjust as fast as any CUDA program while running completely on the CPU, not to mention lots of other things that can't be done on the GPU, and now all we're being judged on is text and a picture? And if we don't get past the text part we don't even get to submit a demo? At least last year we could put up videos.
