We are currently in Tokyo, Japan for the Mozilla Vision 2012 conference and hack day. For two days Mozilla Japan with friends from the other locations are putting up an amazing effort to encourage people to help us educate the next generation of web makers.
Being in Japan, all of this is of course wrapped in quite some amazing tech like voice activated robots with emotional responses, but also good old dinosaurs you can take your tourist shots with:
My part of the play was to give a talk about HTML5 and how we can use it now to give our users a better web experience. The slides are available.
There is an audio recording of the talk on archive.org:
The demos I showed in the talk were:
- A morphing cube in CSS
- An HTML5 rotating logo with CSS3 and JS
- Progressively enhancing “box rollovers”
- The 3D tester
- The beanie maker
- Cropping images in the browser
- Building a game from HTML
- The Mouselock API
- The Gamepad API
Today we are at a hack day – stay tuned for some more of the information on that soon.
