WebGL around the net, 26 April 2012

  • The first WebGL Camp Europe has been announced! It’s on 3 July 2012 in Muttenz (near Basel), Switzerland.
  • The mass driver test organised by Benoit Jacob of Mozilla has led to a bunch of fixes going in to Gecko, so if you’re interested in helping again, the second round of tests has now started.
  • Sway is a very neat 4K demo by Bits’n’Bites. (via WebGL.com) [WARNING: Steve reports in the comments that this one "crashes my graphics driver. Using Chrome versions 19 and 20, Windows 7 32-bit, NVidia Geforce 8600m"]
  • Here’s a cool shader-only demo by Simon Green on the GLSL Sandbox, inspired by M.C. Escher’s Depth. (via AlteredQualia)
  • Ludum Dare is a rapid game development community; LittlePlanetBigRocket is a very fun entry into their “Tiny Planets” WebGL competition, from David Evans.
  • Another great demo from AlteredQualia: a car with gorgeous baked illumination. (via WebGL.com)
  • Never mind all this GPU-enabled realism stuff. Let’s render our Three.js scenes in ASCII! (via Tony Parisi)
  • Stewart Hamilton-Arrandale’s Ribbons demo is quite attractive. (via WebGL.com)
  • The Superformula can apparently be used to describe many complex shapes and curves that are found in nature. Here’s a Three.js-based explorer for it, by (I think) Sebastian Sadowski.
  • Jerome Etienne’s Tunnel demo will look familiar to anyone who’s seen the BlackBerry TunnelTilt game — though it doesn’t have the gameplay elements yet. (via WebGL.com)
  • Here’s a nice little fractal terrain generator in Three.js by Xueqiao Xu (via Nooshu on the Three.js subreddit)
  • Kamiori is a site by Aleece Burgess to teach origami using WebGL. (via WebGL.com)
  • Following the Japanese theme, if vocaloid music is your kind of thing then you might like Atsushi Takayama’s Miku Miku Dance. (via WebGL.com)
  • Windows Maze by SirTopHat is quite fun! (via WebGL.com)
  • Gerber files are used to describe printed circuit boards; Mayhew Labs have developed an online viewer for their results. (via Nooshu on the Three.js subreddit)

    @Alvaro — thanks! It’s in this week’s roundup

    @Steve — thanks for the warning, I’ve added something to the link.

    @case — never heard of that — do you have a demo page online somewhere?
