Sorry for the quietness around here! Things have been hectic over the last couple of weeks, and to make things worse, my Raspberry Pi just arrived… So, here are the links people have sent over email, Twitter, and comments here on the blog — and next week I’ll go back to my more in-depth WebGL-hunting. As always, if you have a demo you want me to put in next week’s roundup, leave a comment below, or drop me a line!
- Four new #WebGLJobs: 500 Group Inc need a freelance WebGL master for 3D product configurator/photorealistic 3D rendering, Bulldog Technology Consultants need a freelancer to create a 3D Viewer, the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) in Galway, Ireland have an opening for a Summer Paid Internship in 3D Web Design and Programming, and — not quite a job, but maybe interesting — a fine art student is looking for a collaborator.
- Some great demos from Ivan Kuckir: a simple ray-traced game, and a neat little app for learning musical notation. He’s also updated IvanK Lib, which does Flash-like rendering of 2D graphics (apparently now with all of the main vector drawing functions from Adobe Flash). Here’s the library’s Bezier curve demo.
- Markus Schütz has built a point cloud renderer,
WebScanopypotree.js, that works with huge datasets — it does this by loading the appropriate level of detail for the current viewpoint — and is keen to hear from people with more data he can use to demonstrate it. Here’s an online version with a couple of smaller datasets, and here’s a video of it rendering a 12GB point cloud.
- Jaume Sánchez Elias has done a lovely game of life in 3D. (via ehqhvm on reddit, via mariuz)
- And on a similar note, Lucas Nasif has a great background to his homepage! (Also via ehqhvm on reddit, via mariuz)
- If you’re mathematically inclined, you’ll understand this gallery of prime knots by Philip Rideout — and even if you’re not, you’ll probably find it fun to investigate.
- Viktor Kovacs has written a lego brick generator.
- From Xavier at Spacegoo, a useless but fun demo Check out Floating News.
- From Takenobu Tomita, a nice particle demo (using Three.js)
