Almost all modern computers and most smartphones have powerful GPUs; graphics processors that often have more number-crunching power than the CPU. But until recently web pages and mobile websites couldn't use them - meaning slow, low-quality graphics, almost always in 2D.
Created by George Corney, this incredible website is experimenting by coupling a CPU-based rigid body simulation with a GPU-based fluid simulation in OpenGL ES; the results are absolutely beautiful. Best viewed in the latest version of Chrome, scroll, swipe and click away to create an almost oil-painting-like effect.
