Wind Turbines 3D

Today we've released new live wallpaper Wind Turbines 3D. In this live wallpaper you will find a perfect combination of nature and technology. You can watch shadows casted on the hills by clouds which slowly move in the sky. In this serene landscape wind slowly rotates blades of giant wind turbines. There's a plenty of options to customize live wallpaper. You can pick any scene ranging from lush green grass to snowy arctic landscapes.
Free version of this live wallpaper is fully functional. The difference between it and full version is that it doesn't have variety of scene customization options present in full version, it has only the grassy landscape.

WebGL 2 fur simulation

WebGL 2 recently became available in latest Firefox and Chrome so it was tempting to try out some of its new features. One of the most important WebGL 2 (and OpenGL ES 3.0, which it is based upon) features is instanced rendering. This feature reduces draw calls overhead by drawing the same geometry multiple times with altered transformations. It was supported in certain implementations of WebGL 1 too but required a certain extension. Most useful for foliage and particles, this technique is also quite often used to simulate fur.

Porting Android live wallpaper to WebGL

Now WebGL works in almost any browser, including mobile ones so it was tempting to try it out. We have experience in creating Android apps using OpenGL ES 2.0. We have released quite a lot of 3D live wallpapers with rich 3D graphics. They are implemented in Java + OpenGL ES 2.0 without using third-party game engines (such as Unity) or high-level frameworks (such as libGDX). This makes our apps lightweight and well-optimized. And since WebGL is based on OpenGL ES 2.0 process of porting live wallpaper to run in browser is quite straightforward.

Developer's notes V. Custom watch faces for Android Wear with OpenGL ES 2.0

As soon as Google announced possibility to create custom watch faces with new Android 5.0 for Android Wear, we’ve ordered brand new ASUS ZenWatch to develop watch face (I believe nothing can beat quality of this device for its price). We decided not to port any of existing live wallpapers to Android Wear but to create some completely new scene for it. This resulted in creating Axiom Watch Faces app which consists of 5 digital watch faces, implemented in 3D with OpenGL ES 2.0.
