Remember way back in May, when NVIDIA showed off Glowball to demonstrate the Tegra 3's awesome quad-core power? Well, it looks like the full version of the visually stunning, technologically fascinating "interactive demo" has made its way to the Tegra Zone.

Glowball isn't quite a game, as it consists of just two levels, and was specifically designed to showcase the Tegra 3's power, but it certainly seems like an enjoyable doodad for your Tegra 3 device. Users can play through richly detailed Carnival and Sea Floor environments, rolling about and experiencing the power of NVIDIA PhysX, as environmental elements hit back or otherwise react to user input.

It's worth reiterating that Glowball was made just for the Tegra 3 "superchip," so users will have to get their hands on a quad-core beast like the Transformer Prime before they can test out the interactive demo. In the meantime, you can check out Glowball's listing over at the Tegra Zone for more screenshots, and a full list of technical wonders present in the game.

    The Market comments are absolutely moronic. 6 1-star reviews all bitching about Photons, Transformers, and XOOMs.

      I dunno, sounds par for the course of Market comments to me.

      At least it's not up on Amazon's store or they'd be trying to get Amazon to remove it because it doesn't work on their single-core phones.

    ...another application that won't let me install even using Chainfire3D Pro (and modifying the market).

      Chainfire is more than likely not compatible with Tegra 3, and you wouldn't want this unless you had a Tegra 3 device anyway - it's a demo showcasing its power.

        Naa, doubt it.
        As soon as I find it in the market I will test it.
        Several "Tegra3" games (just marketing) have worked with C3D already.

          Oops, this one might be true. Just black screen here.

        You mean the Chainfire 3D NVIDIA plugin right? Still I really wish they would start releasing Tegra 3 devices more specifically a 10-inch Samsung tablet and phone.
