Awesome-ness abounds. Sad I found this on hacker news before g+ or other feed but oh well.

"...I actually built the whole thing on top of Three.js, mrdoob's excellent JavaScript 3D engine. Aside from providing a comprehensive standard library for 3D manipulation, it also lets you swap out the rendering component. Out of the box, it can render to a 2D canvas, a WebGL canvas, or SVG."

Having built a quick prototype, I was satisfied with how well it worked, particularly in Safari on OS X, where the cross-pollination from the iPhone's mature tile-based GPU renderer has clearly paid off and there is no lag at all.

...and switch to safari very nice!1!

The layout is a responsive multi-column grid that collapses down for smaller screens and devices. Finally, a strict vertical rhythm is enforced in the lines to keep everything nice and tidy.

Performance in Safari is wonderfully smooth too, but Chrome OS X starts to lag a bit.

Name dropping like a fool :)

Awesome. A smart guy who does smart things. More later.

I don't want the computer equivalent of a screwdriver and a hammer, I want a tricorder and a laser saw.

Sounds familiar, semantic command line

I now remember this, published May 17 2011. If only I had been able to understand how to be lazy back then. It's all just bits, ones and zeroes. Take a hard problem and just make it work. Incredible bar to set my intra-expectations to.
