Video: More realistic crash simulation for video games isn't far away

The crashes portrayed in most automotive video games typically involve a few tweaked polygons, and the result is a dirtied-up car that has trouble turning in both directions. Even in the top-tier simulations available for the average console gamer, crashes are offered up in one of two ways. Vehicles will smash together in scenes that make Michael Bay jealous, or the crash damage will be wildly minor even if the vehicle involved was traveling at over 200 miles per hour prior to the accident.

It seems some out there are working to make these virtual smash ups a bit more realistic, and we recently came across a video that shows us what’s possible. Check out the oddly mesmerizing demo video posted after the break.
