 I would really like to program in cuda, Nvidia. Difficult to find good GPU programming on the web.

 OpenCL is generic GPU programming. That will work with AMD, INTEL, and Nvidia's old slow commands.

 Cuda is Nvidia's only gpu programming.  Very fast.

 The memory model is pretty much the same in this video:

Especially direct compute, theres not much there except demos,  no real tutorial things.

its a 500 times speed up on my computer,  but ive only got 4 gigs of ram to do the brain store.   Im running the rule program per access of its copy of the environment, so itll definitely add up to the workload for the gpu.

I was just writing the shaders then,  nearly done, i want it done tonight!   then testing can be probably in a couple of days.
Im just passing it a depth map instead of concocting it from the colours, but the finished one will have a 3d from rgb element on it.

So Keghn, keep watching here, and ill have my first walker going!  but hopefully hell be a run and jumper! :)
I want the robot to actually charge itself from the aussie power points by itself when it runs low on battery.   Its gonna be kewl!

And solar power will be there as well,  i might end up probably doing the easy thing and make it sun bake like a lizard,  thats an easier option,  but i might do both,  cause i need this thing to be really as good as its going to be.
