Yeah, the group has come up before.

And as discussed before, their claims are outlandish without qualifications.

I have seen large scientific datasets that are multiple terabytes of raw volumetric data. I don't care how good the rendering engine is, they're not going to handle it in real time at a high processing rate on today's hardware unless they have a fairly expensive computing center. They could certainly rent a bunch of nodes from Amazon or Google, but all that compute time and space won't be cheap.
