SculptGL. Cloud Based 3D Modeling.

As internet speeds become faster, and computers become more powerful more and more software is moving to the cloud. Less than 5 years ago SculptGL would have been almost impossible, but in todays world Fully functional, 3d workflow is coming to your browser. Right now this software runs at peak performance in Chrome, and with limited vertices limited to 65536 in Firefox 22. In Firefox 24 that limit will be gone though.

SculptGL is a web sculpting application, powered by WebGL and JavaScript. It features dynamic and adaptive topological tools for sculpting. Adaptive sculpting enables changes in the topological genus which allows the user to create holes and merges on the model. The software looks promising, and it looks like this is the wave of the future. Even 3D giant Autodesk is jumping on the band wagon.

Introducing Google’s “Chrome Book”.

For me, the jury is still out on Google’s “Chrome Book” set to launch later this summer. What I am sure about is the look and feel that Google has developed to explain the product and its features. These animations are great. They have a fun casual look to them and they explain what the product is without becoming dry, stuffy, academic, or boring, something that isn’t easy to do when you are talking about technology.
