We review some recent progress of the CIP method that is known as a general numerical solver for solid, liquid, gas and plasmas. This method is a kind of semi-Lagrangian scheme and has been extended to treat incompressible flow in the framework of compressible fluid. Since it uses primitive Euler representation, it is suitable for multi-phase analysis. Some applications to skimmer, swimming fish and laser cutting are presented. This method is recently extended to almost mesh-free system that is called 'soroban grid' that ensures the third-order accuracy both in time and space with the help of the CIP method.
