The Edge of HTML5 and What's new in HTML5 Media

Posted 10:05AM on January 21 2012 by pascal

Two very interesting web-presentations (Edge of HTML5, What's new in HTML5 Media) by Eric Bidelman of Google on the current bleeding edge of HTML5 as of Jan 2012, touching on interesting to game-development topics as: 

  1. Transferable Objects (for zero-copy transmission to webworkers and back)
  2. Mouse Lock / Pointer Lock API (Chrome 18/FF11 or 12)
  3. GamePad API
  4. requestAnimationFrame
  5. Camera & Microphone access
  6. Fullscreen API
  7. Web Audio API

Many of the examples require a nightly build of Chrome or Firefox or a preview build of Opera.
