RIM first told us that WebGL was coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook Browser and WebWorks apps a few months ago. Still it is pretty impressive what they have done with the technology especially releasing it with PlayBook OS 2.0. In case you don’t know, WebGL is a new technology that allows developers to perform advanced rendering and 3D graphics in your browser. Think awesome games, 3D maps, and more. The PlayBook is the first tablet to have WebGL and RIM’s web team is very proud of that.
If you want to get an idea of what WebGL can do check out this TunnelTilt demo game created by RIM to show of the PlayBook’s capabilities.
If you are a web developer or OpenGL developer interested in learning more about WebGL and available frameworks to build for the BlackBerry PlayBook and elsewhere then definitely check out RIM’s primer article on the subject. Adam does a great job of covering the topic and where you should get started!
