WebGL is a Javascript API allowing your browser (well, assuming you're not using IE though) to render proper 3D using your graphic card.

3D on the web? Nothing new, true. It's been there for ages, true. Through Flash or Java or whatever, true again. But webGL is natively supported by the latest version of browsers, meanings there's no political restriction for it to be used on mobile devices.

For the moment, most of websites using webGL are more technical demo than anything you would spend more than 5mn looking at.

But a few of them already brings real value and interest. BioDigital.com is one of then, letting you explore the human anatomy within an impressive level of interactivity.
