3D coding fun in the browser

Despite that an increasing amount of my time is spent on giving talks, research and otherwise evangelising about technology – I still love to code. This is a good example on just that, being able to tinker with a visually rewarding task like creating this 3D-animation of trees. The animation is made possible with a newer web technology called Web GL that allows advanced live 3D in your browser.

The library Three.js allows a simple interface to creating the 3D content. Visit CodePen to peek at the code : http://codepen.io/gadgetgnome/pen/gpoMGg
