Last week, at the GDC in San Francisco, the Khronos group announced an initiative to bring accelerated 3D graphics to the web. At Altadyn, we have been long time believers of web 3D through a browser, since the company’s inception in 2002, so we were curious what is new in this initiative, as were some of 3DXplorer users. This short Q/A list helps better positioning this news.
Is this a new web 3D platform ? No it’s not a platform comparable to 3DXplorer , OpenSim or other platforms, as it’s missing many components of a platform; It’s missing the 3D engine to start with.
What problem does it solves? It will enable web developers, mainly game developers, to develop browser-based games which will use hardware accelerator boards.
