Submission + - Kuda, WebGL tech for creating in browser based 3D

kilrathu writes: A new open source HTML5 / WebGL tool has been created as a result of a project undertaken by the U.S. Dept of Energy to train Weatherization workers . This technology, called Kuda, is a set of JavaScript libraries that build on Google’s O3D technology by providing a GUI to build interactive 3D environments. It also runs in browser. It allows people to import 3D assets and make them interactive with a simple message handler utility.

We at the Federation of American Scientists (the non-profit group that made this) are working on a way to make it run under WINE but we don't have it quite yet. We hope to have it up by the end of the month. Sorry.

The reality is we made this with a very limited budget and for that reason we have not not yet implemented a mac/*nix version yet. This is primarily a research project to show that students can learn from video games. The goal is to prove to policy makers that technology can be used to improve education. FAS is open to any feedback you can give them about the game or if you can help get it into the classroom.

If you really need a different version consider donating or joining FAS [http://fas.org/member/index.html] so that we can continue development.

The reason computer chips are so small is computers don't eat much.

Working...
