WebGL around the net, 19 July 2012

  • Interesting: Chris Nicolai’s Mandelic visualises what happens to the points normally shown in black in the center of a Mandelbrot set plot.
  • Nucleal uses GPU particles to animate transitions between photos. Well worth a look!
  • Octrees are excellent data structures for searching a 3D scene (for example to find out what’s been hit by raycasting when the user clicks somewhere), and Collin Hover has open-sourced a library to use them in Three.js.
  • Markus Schütz’s pointcloud renderer, previously WebScanopy, is now called potree.js, and has a nice new demo of a skate park with 40 million points.
  • OVoiD.JS is a new WebGL framework, including a simple physics engine.
  • YES made a WebGL-enabled site for Quinn, a UK architect; the front page shows one of two different models of buildings they’ve designed.
  • Stilla is an iPhone app where you take multiple photos, and it uses the phone’s gyroscope to work out how they relate to each other and puts them together into crystal-like animations. The latest version has a WebGL-based website where you can see your Stilla photos without needing the app.
