Title: 3 Dreams of Black: WebGL powered music video
Post by: ljbade on May 14, 2011, 01:53:13 AM
Google have released the best WebGL demo I have seen so far: 3 Dreams of Black (

“3 Dreams of Black” is our newest music experience for the web browser, written and directed by Chris Milk and developed with a few folks here at Google. The song, “Black,” comes off the album ROME, presented by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi, featuring Jack White and Norah Jones on vocals and soon to be released on the record label Parlophone/EMI.

In “3 Dreams in Black”, the browser is transformed into a theater for these lucid virtual dreams through WebGL, a new technology which brings hardware-accelerated 3D graphics to the browser. With WebGL in modern browsers like Google Chrome, you can interact with 3D experiences with no need for additional software. For curious web developers out there, we’ve made all the code completely open and available so that you can dig in, have a look around and try it out for yourself.

There is even a 3D editor and model viewer! The full source code is also available on Google Code along with some mini-demos of the different GL tricks used in the video.
