3D in Silverlight
since there is no "build-in" 3D engine in Silverlight it makes sense to build some kind of engine. The project Balder (http://www.codeplex.com/Balder) addresses this. And having a look on the first demos gave me a good feeling on performance ;-)
But: How geeky are those guys ??? I found the project description, red is the technical description, yellow is the description of the project name:
A 3D game engine for Silverlight and possibly other .net based technologies.
The name Balder comes from Norse Mythology. Balder is the modern Norwegian, Swedish and Danish form. He is also known as Baldr or Baldur (icelandic). Balder is the god of innocence.
The second son of Odin is Baldr, and good things are to be said of him. He is best, and all praise him; he is so fair of feature, and so bright, that light shines from him. A certain herb is so white that it is likened to Baldr's brow; of all grasses it is whitest, and by it thou mayest judge his fairness, both in hair and in body. He is the wisest of the Æsir, and the fairest-spoken and most gracious; and that quality attends him, that none may gainsay his judgments. He dwells in the place called Breidablik, which is in heaven; in that place may nothing unclean be[.] - Brodeur's translation
