One Millionth Tower documentary showcases the art of HTML5
After Adobe announced its quitting the development of Flash for mobile browsers, all eyes turned to HTML5 as the ubiquitous future web standard. We’ve taken a first look at the possibilities HTML5 brings - videos, games, even 3D content all without the need to install additional plug-ins.

That’s all good on paper, but it won’t impress you until you see it in action, and action is what this One Millionth Tower documentary coming from the National Film Board of Canada’s Highrise project is all about. You can watch the video below for a passive view of the neighbourhood the Board is depicting, but the experience gets up a notch if you kick it off in HTML5. The coding masters have relied on HTML5, WebGL and different other open source JavaScript librararie to create the immerive 3D setup.

And if you want to give it a shot, it’s all for the taking as the source code is freely available. Hit the link below for all the details, but not before you watch the video below giving you an idea about the project.
