For the next few weeks I’ll be working on the open source project Gladius. More specifically, I’ll be working on CubicVR.js, a rendering engine which is one part of the Gladius 3D game engine. Gladius in turn is part of Paladin, Mozilla’s initiative to bring awesome gaming technologies to the Web.
Since Gladius is a game engine, it is essentially a conglomeration of many game-related technologies:
This list is not exhaustive. As the project matures it is expected other libraries and technologies will be incorporated.
The release date for Gladius 0.1 is mid February, so I’ll be contributing where I can to help out with the release. Last week I started by making a minor tweak to CubicVR.js. Not much, but it’s a start. I also noticed there wasn’t a way for developers to simply check for AABB-AABB intersection. So I filed the issue and began working on that as well. This week I’ll be working with Bobby Richter to fix COLLADA related bugs which is super exciting. (:
