Google Revamps 3D Web Plan

May 29, 2010

Just a little while back, I wrote about Google O3D and the hopes of universal 3D content. Well, seems there is another turn. Google has partly scrapped the browser plug-in project called O3D, instead throwing its full weight behind a 3D Web graphics technology called WebGL that got its start at Mozilla.

The move, first reported by CNET, has the potential to simplify the effort to bring hardware-accelerated 3D graphics to the Web, an idea that has appeal to those trying to refashion it as a foundation for applications such as games. However, it also means the functioning–if experimental–O3D technology is going back to the drawing board for a while.

You can see the full story at CNET NEWS here.
