Year ago we developed application for navigating in Standard Slide catalog. It was written in Flex and still it’s serving very well.
This year we decided to make further step and we’re preparing version in HTML5. Not only that. We would like to show 3D models right in the browser.
Many thanks to Three.js for great Canvas/WebGL library.
I’ll share small sneak peek with you. I recommend to view it in Google Chrome or Firefox 4+ which has support for WebGL. Other modern browsers supports Canvas and 3D model will be displayed there as well.
Application is not finished yet. Models are in prototype version. We have to fix some issues, but it nicely demonstrates power of HTML5.
Update: You can test newer version 0.6
I was playing little bit with GLGE library.
Here is sample screenshot:
