We could display 3d world files (VRML and what not.
this whole webGL thing imho seems to vrml/x3d what canvas is to svg -
two sides of the same coin. but than again i'm not all that familiar
with it). I'm not sure how useful that'd be. Could display 3d shapes
perhaps where the user could control the viewpoint. Maybe to make
3d-tour esque things where you could look arround a place. Overall the
uses of such a thing seem rather minimal.
Displaying 3D models is an obvious and useful one! I wonder if the
rendering speed is useful. (The Firefox 3 and 3.5 SVG renderer is
usably accurate, but *really slow*.)
We'd probably need a server-side renderer to drop back to. But yeah,
that's a use for this.
