WebGL


The WebGL is a part of the JavaScript language library. It enables one to create interactive interfaces and creative environments.

The latest example that we come across is the Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) .
The whole startup environment of the menu and all the tiles are made in WebGL exclusively.

It is an extremely powerful web technology library, which makes UI design using the 3D models and interfaces very fluid and simple. It provides an elegant look to interfaces.

It runs on the OpenGL 2.0 model. All the web browsers are usually equipped to handle this version of the OpenGL but the higher versions of OpenGL requires professional graphics cards like Nvidia's Professional Graphics soultions as Nvidia Quadro Series.

 Now once the content is created we need to test the results as they are to be sold as finished products so we require the consumer graphics solutions or the gaming graphics cards like Nvidia Geforce Series
