Safari On iOS8 Supports WebGL - The New Era Can Now Commence

Safari On iOS8 Supports WebGL - The New Era Can Now Commence | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it

The biggest announcement at WWDC has mostly gone unnoticed and uncommented - WebGL support in the Safari browser on OSX and iOS. At last the big browsers all support 3D graphics and web apps and web games in particular are effectively universal.

Jed Fisher's insight:

Breaking news - WebGL will be supported on iOS!!

At 4D Pipeline we do a lot of webgl development as well as a lot of iOS OpenGL development. Previously WebGL was not able to be played on iOS but from iOS8 it finally will be!

With Internet Explorer now supporting it and iOS8 now supporting it - this removes the final roadblocks webgl has been facing.

Not only is it supported in the Safari browser but in WebView as well, which means that native apps that want to show HTML content can now show it including advanced graphics!

 

Note: Also worth noting the iOS Metal 3D announcement

This improves the native 3D api for the iOS A7 chip, thus iOS 8 native apps should be able to outperform webgl by ~5-10x

Stop the Presses!!! WebGL Confirmed For IE11

Stop the Presses!!! WebGL Confirmed For IE11 | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it

This confirms WebGL for IE11. IE11 WebGL Conformance Test Results: 14,748 of 20,509 tests pass (71.9%).

Jed Fisher's insight:

Woohoo! It's unbelievable that it has taken so long but finally we can expect Microsoft WebGL support with IE11!! Now all browsers will support webgl on all modern platforms. Only iOS remains unsupported but for this there are ways to get it working. Fantastic news, the entire 3D community just cried out in joy!

10 WebGL sites that will blow you away

10 WebGL sites that will blow you away | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it

" .net magazine's creative coder and developer Paul Lewis rounds up 10 of the best new WebGL sites and provides some handy tips along the way, if you, too, want to join the 3D revolution"

Jed Fisher's insight:

Slightly old article but a great roundup of still some of the best examples of what can be done with WebGL. Very impressed with many of these.

Nice roundup, cars looks really cool :) another one can be found here (also a bit older) http://insidethefactory.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/03/morefunwithwebgl.html

The boom is coming - New businesses powered by new Web Standards, HTML5 and WebGL

The boom is coming - New businesses powered by new Web Standards, HTML5 and WebGL | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it
The Cl3ver 3D content authoring site is a project funded by Wayra, an accelerator fund backed by Spain's Telefonica. The young company is making the rounds of potential funders.
Jed Fisher's insight:

Nice job by Cl3ver but the first sentence is key "The boom is coming … another one. Web standards, HTML5, and WebGL are enabling smart young companies to take 3D online."

This is indeed the truth. 

At 4D Pipeline, we've helped many companies create great 3D WebGL experiences. What is best about it is not only have we helped create great 3D WebGL experiences but UNIQUE and VALUABLE great 3D WebGL experiences.

WebGL and mobile allow young companies to take an idea to market that is rich, visual, immersive, and interactive. No longer do you need a team of 60, instead you do it with 1 or 2 developers in a couple of months. 

Take you idea to market today. Time waits for no one!

Tinkercad to close its web-based 3D modeling tool, making way for new Airstone project

Tinkercad to close its web-based 3D modeling tool, making way for new Airstone project | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Tinkercad, a browser-based 3D modeling tool that helps everyday people create useful prototypes and professional renders, will be shutting down so that its team can continue developing Airstone, ...
Jed Fisher's insight:

It's sad to see Tinkercad go... Tinkercad had a loyal following of fans but it appears they must have struggled to monetize the business. The tech and team have closed the door but opened a new company call Airstone Labs.
