Normal Mapped Photos
This experiment demonstrates interesting interactive lighting effects applied to images.
This interesting HTML5 game is reminiscent of old 3D platform games and shows you how capable modern open source web technologies are in computer graphics animation. Beware though that there is background music, so lower your computer speaker’s volume before venturing into the maze!
The Cloth Simulation
This interactive experiment uses the HTML5 canvas element to display the simulation of the physics of how cloth material moves. The application for this demonstration could be in 3D animation.
This interactive experiment animates your mouse movements in a grid rendered on an HTML5 canvas element.
