Where we came from
By creating an ultra-efficient search algorithm – similar to the way that Google can instantly search the vast amounts of data on the internet – Bruce was able to fundamentally change the way that 3D data was handled by computers, liberating the technology from the confines of high-end hardware requirements. In late 2009, Euclideon began its life as a gaming company, and shot to fame when it released its now famous ‘Unlimited Detail’ demonstration video onto YouTube. However, the company soon realised that its technology offered incredible benefits to the geospatial industry. In 2010, Euclideon received one of the largest government grants to commercialise Unlimited Detail with the first offering being its geospatial software offering, Geoverse.
Euclideon in the media
All this attention stemmed from a demonstration video posted to YouTube in 2011. The video demonstrated such a fundamental departure from what was currently thought possible, that many people called it out as a hoax. It wasn’t. The island demonstrated in the video measured 1 kilometre square, and had a resolution of 64 atoms per cubic millimetre – this was so fine that you could even make out individual grains of dirt. If this were to translate to traditional, polygon-based graphics, it would require the use of 21 trillion polygons, and would require the power of thousands of Xboxes to render – yet here it was running on a single laptop, so it’s understandable that people were skeptical.

Euclideon’s ultimate vision is to better the world for good by increasing global efficiency by one percent. Euclideon will achieve this by continuing to challenge the impossible and creating powerful technologies that increase production efficiencies – reducing global waste, and giving people more time to do things they enjoy. Euclideon’s visualisation technologies are applicable to an infinite number of applications across countless industries, including education, training, medical, engineering, science, academia, and more. By aiding these industries, Euclideon really can change the world for the better.
The future is laser scanning
No longer will objects have to be modelled in 3D environments – a real world object can now be laser-scanned and placed – with unlimited detail – in 3D environments, for use in video games, movies, scientific and historical studies, forensics, medical applications, and more. By significantly easing the pain of dealing with 3D laser-scanned data, Euclideon has enabled an infinite number of new applications, and set new benchmarks across multiple industries. The revolution has begun.
Still focused on the gaming industry
Despite its interest in the spatial industry, Euclideon has not forgotten its roots in gaming technologies, and is continuing to develop exciting and revolutionary technologies to be used in next-gen games. Watch this space for future announcements.
