Learning WebGL A year ago, at a biggest-ever, record-breaking HTML5 Meetup in San Francisco all about WebGL, I predicted we were a tipping point; I think I was right. Let’s take a look at 2014, a banner year for 3D on the web! A Year of Great Content John Cale and Liam Young’s City of Drones brought together experiments in music and architecture; Isaac Cohen continued to blow minds with visualizations like Weird Kids and Webby; Google’s A Spacecraft for All chronicled the 36-year journey of the ISEE-3 space probe; and SKAZKA showed us an alternate world created by The Mill and powered by Goo. WebGL Water Loading... Made by Evan Wallace This demo requires a decent graphics card and up-to-date drivers.

X3D X3D should not be confused with 3DXML, which is a proprietary 3D file format. X3D is a royalty-free ISO standard XML-based file format for representing 3D computer graphics. It is successor to the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML).[1] X3D features extensions to VRML (e.g. CAD, Geospatial, Humanoid animation, NURBS etc.), the ability to encode the scene using an XML syntax as well as the Open Inventor-like syntax of VRML97, or binary formatting, and enhanced application programming interfaces (APIs). X3D extension supports multi-stage and multi-texture render, it also supports shader with lightmap and normalmap. In 2010 X3D supports deferred rendering architecture.

Programming 3D Applications with HTML5 and WebGL In its roughly twenty years of existence, 3D on the web has taken a tortuous journey. In 1994 it was a Next Big Thing called VRML that grabbed industry attention, only to ultimately become a bastard stepchild of mainstream web development during the first Internet boom. Around 2000, a new Next Big Thing called Shockwave 3D promised to democratize game development; by 2004, that offspring was also shipped off to the orphanage. 40 Beautiful Free HTML5 & CSS3 Templates Dec 01 2011 Over the last few years there has been great collections of quality free HTML & CSS templates published on Noupe such as 50 Free High-Quality and “New” (X)HTML/CSS Templates (2009) and 40+ Elegant Free CSS/(X)HTML Templates (2010). There have been some great free templates released over the last year so we thought it would be appropriate to share some of these great new designs with you all.

Get started with WebGL Use WebGL to create incredibly fast graphics. WebGL basics Using the WebGL API you can create high performance 2D and 3D graphics by directly programming and controlling the computer's graphics processing unit (GPU). WebGL renders on a canvas element as a drawing context much like the 2D context, but provides very low-level access to your computer's GPU. HTML5 deployment platform Performance is key to mobile web app and game development, and CocoonJS was designed from the ground up to accelerate all aspects of HTML5 execution. CocoonJS provides the best JavaScript and HTML5 execution environments to choose from, depending on the type of your project and the platforms you want to deploy it to. If your project is an HTML5 canvas game CocoonJS provides the most performant canvas 2D and WebGL implementation in the market for iOS and Android. This environment is a highly specialized JavaScript virtual machine with a blazing fast implementation of everything needed to make canvas 2D or WebGL based games scream on mobile!

Echo Test The first section of this page will let you do an HTML5 WebSocket test against the echo server. The second section walks you through creating a WebSocket application yourself. You can also inspect WebSocket messages using your browser.

In today’s lesson we will look at the load process of ready three-dimensional objects. There are many websites where you can download these models, and moreover, if you have an editor of three-dimensional objects (like 3D Max, Maya, or even Blender), you can create your own models. There are also many file formats of three-dimensional objects, such as obj, collada (dae), obj, mtl, stl, vrml and so on. Most of them can be loaded into your three.js scenes using special loaders.
