Ever since GDC 2011 and the news that Apex PhysX support would be coming to the Unreal Development Kit (http://www.gamephys.com/2011/03/09/epic-games-releases-march-2011-unreal-development-kit-beta-with-apex-physx-support/) along with the first APEX Destruction Demo From the NVIDIA Booth at GDC 2011 (http://www.gamephys.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Unreal_development_kit.jpg) we have been excited about any news related to it. Apex PhysX support for the Unreal Development Kit was released in March (http://www.gamephys.com/2011/03/09/epic-games-releases-march-2011-unreal-development-kit-beta-with-apex-physx-support/) and we have started to see some pretty cool stuff being made with it like the First APEX Physics(PhysX) Test With the Unreal Development Kit (http://www.gamephys.com/2011/03/12/video-first-apex-physicsphysx-test-with-the-unreal-development-kit/), and various Apex Destruction Demonstrations with the UDK (http://www.gamephys.com/2011/03/16/awesome-apex-destruction-demonstration-with-the-unreal-development-kit/). Now YouTube user RU1NOUS (http://www.youtube.com/user/RU1NOUS) has made a video that has blown us away. he has made a completely destructible level in the UDK (http://www.udk.com/) with the Apex Destruction tool (http://developer.nvidia.com/apex-destruction) that looks like some kind of tech demo that Nvidia would release to show off PhysX. RU1NOUS (http://www.youtube.com/user/RU1NOUS) said he is doing this for his university dissertation and this is still a work in progress and plans to post an updated video soon so stay tuned for more info. It is great to see people doing things like this. Now the next step is to get this stuff implemented into actual games or tech demos that we can play with! Check out the video below and be sure to check out his YouTube page for more info and videos (http://www.youtube.com/user/RU1NOUS).
