I wasn't too impressed, either. Seems more like a physics showcase, really.

I think that's what it's all about. Water physics. Does the water look extra life like?

I believe this demo takes advantage of predicated rendering.

OMG this thing is one of the most impressive things I have ever seen. The water flowing in realtime is absolutely incredible... its not until you play with this thing hands on that you get the full grasp of it. I've seen plenty of videos of this thing running in realtime, but actually seeing it work is something else.
