OUYA Case

We just launched OUYACase.com, where we plan on trying to sell 3D printed custom OUYA cases.  Want one?!?!

The Unified Front-end Convergence

It's not often I plug someone else's genius.  But, I'm thorouly enamoured with this dude's kungfu.  I am envious and humbled.  

Please have a look at http://acko.net/

He makes a point in his blog post (http://acko.net/blog/zero-to-sixty-in-one-second/) about something that  I've been looking to happen for a long time.  

"It's also fun to observe that after many years, the unified front-end convergence really has arrived. There is little difference between this site and the games that use HTML for their UI, such as the latest Sim City. For dealing with typography, illustration and UI, you want the comfort of DOM and CSS. For real-time graphical content, you'll want to draw it yourself, either in 2D, or 3D. Combine the two, and you get what game developers have been doing for years. Only this lacks all the sharp C bits, which game devs been replacing with Lua for years anyhow. That's Portuguese for "JavaScript" by the way."

For a guy with an extensive background in 3d, good times are a comin'.  This is the first occurance that I've really seen WebGL used by someone with the convergence of aesthetic and technical skills to really do something amazing with a browser.  I look forward with a gitty eagerness to check out his code, which he's made available at https://github.com/unconed/fuse10/!!!!  I don't know that I would be as totally blown away by this guy if he hadn't shared the source.  Now that's really something. 

Cheers to you, Steven Wittens!!
