WebGL, the 3D technology that's associated with HTML5, continues to make giant strides in diverse areas:

  • Exploration of human anatomy: Zygote Body, released yesterday, and BioDigital Human, the successors to Google Body (previously)
  • World Visualisation: WebGL Earth, Nokia's 3D Map of the entire earth (previously). WorldWeather and The WebGL Globe, a Google project that displays all kinds of data. Also: Where Does My Tweet Go?
  • Games: browser ports of Team Fortess 2, Quake 3 and Rage (a developer’s diary). SkidRacer, an entire game in WebGL. Mini Mass Effect (not yet playable, sadly).
  • Musicals: Lights.
  • Tools: 3Notes.js, a visual scene editor. Developer documentation. More resources.

(Via the just-concluded 2010 Games, Learning and Society conference here in Madison.)
