New Adventures in 3D

Rob talks about how the accelerated world of 3D graphics on the web is changing both the boundaries of what's possible, and people's expectations of future content.

From the latest additions to the featureset of Stage3D to the ever expanding reach of WebGL and the year on year improvements in graphics capabilities of mobile and desktop devices.

This session explores the new horizons of high-end graphics, and some of the tools and apis that The Away Foundation is developing to assist the creators in this evolving field.
