HTML5 and O3D

I keep on hearing about the existence of HTML5, and how it takes a big bite out of the need for flash. Here’s a cool (40min) video about the main things in it.

The message appears to be ‘this stuff is all available now, have at it’. Mention of Internet Explorer is strangely missing, but I know IE has at least some support.



Another interesting up and coming technology O3D, which “is an open-source web API for creating rich, interactive 3D applications in the browser”. I looked at a demo, and you write your app/game in JavaScript.

Here’s a (1min) video of O3D in action.


It’s going to be interesting to see where the internet and gaming is in a few years. It looks like we might all be learning JavaScript :)
