Video: N900 Rendering WebGL 3D graphics

Thursday 03rd, December 2009 / 16:43 Written by

Here’s a video of the Nokia N900 rendering 3D graphics so smoothly. Just goes to show how powerful the N900 really is. The graphics are displayed on a development version of Firefox which has WebGL rendering capability.

What is WebGL?
Wikipedia defines WebGL as “WebGL is a standard specification currently being developed to display 3D graphics on web browsers. It enables hardware-accelerated rich 3D graphics in web pages without the need for special browser plug-ins, on any platform supporting OpenGL or OpenGL ES. Technically it is a binding for JavaScript to native OpenGL ES 2.0 implementation, to be built in to browsers.“.
