Lucas Meadows stashed this in HTML5
The idea sounds borderline crazy, but it's fascinating and inspiring nonetheless!
Excerpt from the website:
The "and possibly IE" bit is probably the best part :)
They've also got a server-side module built in node.js.
Another vid on multithreaded physics:
An OS inside a browser running on a different OS ?!
If someone could build a browser to run in that OS inside a browser, we'd enjoy a nice little Inception moment.
I'm not certain why Corey Clark wants to build a "DHTML5" OS, nor am I sure what the market there is for such a product, but I do believe that there are many interesting things to be learned from such a quixotic undertaking.
It's also interesting to see an academic working with nodejs + webgl and actually getting somewhere with it.
I'm going to watch this project and see where it goes. There are so many exciting things happening with next-gen web. We're only just working out what sorts of things are possible with these new technologies -- we haven't even begun to see what viable products might eventually come from them.
