    This is awesome! And it works in the normal non-beta version of chrome without intervention, so you may not even need to monkey around with plugins and command flags if you happen to use that browser.

    ‘Cutting edge’ really? Cool, as it ran perfectly in Firefox 7 on my Samsung Galaxy S II, but didn’t run at all on the stock Android browser.

  5. This would have been great in Spore.

    The output is in VRML, but you can convert it to other formats – using tools such as the open-source Blender – for import to 3D modeling/rendering programs as well.

    Instant space fleet!

    Am I the only one who thought of the Nostoromo (specifically the landing portion) when seeing the sample above?
