Amazing WebGL and HTML5 Apps

  • Cell Cycle Creating 3d-printable cellular models.

You can shape, twist, and subdivide, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.

Explore a detailed 3D model of the human body. Zygote Body uses WebGL and taps directly into the GPU to accelerate rendering of 3D scenes. Take it for a spin and learn about different layers of anatomy by moving the slider or toggling layers on and off with the buttons. Not sure where something is? Try the search box

How to get WebGL enable?

For testing/debugging purposes, software rendering can be used through OSMesa (off-screen Mesa), by setting the “webgl.osmesalib” variable to point to the OSMesa shared library (typically /usr/lib/libOSMesa.so). Note that the OSMesa library is required to use “gl” prefixes, not “mgl”. You can also try setting the “webgl.force-enabled” variable to true if WebGL is not working. Variables can be accessed by typing “about:config” in the address bar.

  • Safari

WebGL is supported on Mac OS X 10.6 in the WebKit nightly builds.

After downloading and installing the browser, open the Terminal and type the following:

defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitWebGLEnabled -bool YES

This command only needs to be run once. All future invocations of the browser will run with WebGL enabled.

  • Chrome

WebGL is available in the stable release of Chrome.

Please report issues you find to either the public WebGL mailing list or via the Chromium issue tracker.

  • Opera

WebGL is supported in Opera 12 alpha.
