WebGL in Chemistry with Molecules

iChemLabs introduces a WebGL extension to their popular, open source, HTML5 chemistry library, ChemDoodle Web Components. Allowing for the complete rendering of molecules in 3D, the ChemDoodle Web Components allow scientists to provide interactive 3D graphics on their webpages. Companies and universities have become interested in WebGL, and iChemLabs believes the technology will revolutionize how the sciences are presented, such as how pharmaceutical companies interact with their customers, how professors teach students, and how synthetic chemists will communicate. The title links to a component allowing one to view structures from the PubChem database. For further information, view this article published on MacResearch.

Cycleblob WebGL/HTML5 game now online

Cycleblob is based on the lighcycles game from TRON. Cycleblob takes TRON to the next level and makes the grid a three-dimentional object, floating in space. Cycleblob is implemented using WebGL and HTML 5 canvas elements and is written completely in JavaScript. Cycleblob was created by Shy Shalom as a personal project for learning WebGL and game engine design. You will, of course, need a WebGL enabled browser to play.
