Fun with the canvas tag

without comments

I’ve been pretty excited about the new canvas tag ever since I first read about it a few months ago. For that matter, I’ve been pretty excited about the whole WHATWG proposal for (X)HTML 5. My day job doesn’t leave me much time for recreational hacking, but this weekend I cobled together this simple demo.

Little graphical hacks like this is what got me into programming waaay back in the day writing in Basic on my Atari 400. Atari Basic was an easy way to learn programming and see visual results easily. This motivated me learn vector math and simple wireframe 3D rendering… A whole career ensued…

Now it seems that todays equivalent of hacking basic is hacking Javascript.
