WebGL: The Technology Behind Danger Mouse’s New Video ’3 Dreams of Black’

WebGL is a new open-source web technology that extends the capability of javaScript to bring hardware accelerated 3D graphics [real-time compositing, procedural drawing, 3D canvas rendering] to the browser without installing additional software. Videos made with WebGL can now bring an added level of interactivity to the users via their web browser.

A growing community of developers are showcasing their works at the Chrome Experiments site which Google is hosting. One of the latest experiments created with WebGL is a music video coming from Danger Mouse called 3 Dreams of Black.

“3 Dreams of Black” is Chris Milk’s new interactive film, created in WebGL with some friends from Google, for Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi’s ROME, featuring Jack White & Norah Jones. The project is a Chrome Experiment that showcases some of the latest web technologies in modern browsers like Google Chrome.

You can check out the actual video over at the ROME website but you need a WebGL ready browser, either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox 4. Safari and Opera should be coming with compatible browsers in future updates. In the video here, you can take a look behind the scenes at how this technology was used to create the new video.
