Blend4Web, NASA and the Curiosity Rover

06 August 2015 09:20 #3330
Dear customers and the Blend4Web community!

We are glad to inform you about a remarkable Blend4Web-powered project recently released by NASA. To celebrate the 3rd anniversary of Curiosity, the famous Mars rover, landing on the red planet, NASA has developed a web application to reflect the most prominent moments of this space mission. This app is both very informative and intriguing: you can move the rover, control its cameras and the robotic arm and even take a selfie!

Outstanding, though it makes sense when one considers the awesomeness that is Blend4Web.

Wouldn't load in IE for Windows10 (sticks at about 30%), loaded in Firefox no problem.

Going to support Win10 by the next release.

I was working for Larrivee guitars when the ISS acoustic guitar was made and sent up to the space station, and now I can say I was part of the B4W community when NASA made this! Congratulations! Maybe I should get some tutorials together to help the inevitable onslaught of new users, I will soon need a fall season project to fill my time.

Would it be possible to get access to the sources of the curiosity project?
For the application that I am about to do this would be a really good starting point. The features are almost the same compared to what I want to do.

I'm not sure about the current plans of NASA in relation to this app. However, it may be possible since they practice open sourcing their projects a lot.
