Peter Nederlof of the infamous Dutch “Lost Boys” created a 3D engine in Canvas.
Straight from the horse’s mouth:
I’ve been working on a 3D engine on canvas for some time, and as I was posting a message on our blog, I figured you guys might be interrested as well :)
The demo is over here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned/3d/
Another (completely useless but fun to watch) one is over here (and
using chrome is strongly advised): http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned/3d/psychedelic3D.html
Ultimately the purpose of this engine would be to provide an easy to
use platform/interface for creating 3D stuff, from degrading interface
elements for sites, to complete games. Collada support is en route,
and with squirrelfish hitting air, I’m considering trying that too :)
More details are available on the Lost Boys blog.
