Videogames based in voxels

Ads


A voxel is the smallest unit of a three dimensional matrix, therefore of any 3D object. Is the equivalent to pixel but in a three dimensional representation. The voxels do not contain spatial position, are positioned according to their relative position in space with other voxels that together form a 3D object.

The voxels are used to represent 3D objects, including the interior, something that the ordinary 3D polygons cannot do.

Therefore we can say that voxels are atoms in 3D virtual worlds. This is very interesting because the 3D objects have mass and may also provide voxels with logic for generating infinity of behaviors as atoms of the different elements that form the matter.

One of the many uses of voxels is the generation of 3D models for video games, especially to represent terrain from heights maps.

Although this use is not widespread because the power required for render 3D graphics based on voxels have to be very large, because it is necessary much memory and high processing capacity. Features that current consoles have not yet.

Many of the current game engines and 3D software are implementing tools to facilitate the use of voxels in the video game industry. No doubt the future of gaming and 3D graphics is fully volumetric.
