3D Web: O3D, X3D, WebGL...

3D Web started with VRML in 1997.
Over time it slowly evolved to X3D
Latest 3D solutions are based on WebGL,
direct access to GPU API OpenGL from JavaScript.

One such library is Google's O3D

Here is a sample game "Pool"

Quite impressive for a web app.

But let's put this in the perspective.
Moore's law  improvement in performance in 16 years is about 2^8,
double every 2 years (or 18 months). That is 256 times.

Could Web 3.0 also be 3D?
