NASA's Blend4Web-Powered Project Won a Webby Award!

[color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'] It seems though the story of [/font][/color]Experience Curiosity[color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'], a Blend4Web-powered simulator developed by NASA, is not quite over. This interactive web application featuring the famous Mars rover was nominated for the highly prestigious Webby Award (aka Internet Oscar) granted to the most exemplary online projects of the year.[/font][/color] [color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'] After a preliminary stage of public online voting, the judges [/font][/color]named[color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'] this project the Webby Award winner in the category of Government & Civil Innovation Websites. Intriguingly, NASA's [/font][/color]second nominated project[color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'], the Unity-powered Spacecraft 3D mobile app, wasn't as lucky![/font][/color]

This time the phrase was [/font][/color][color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light']Rockin' and Rovin' on Mars[/font][/color][color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'], voiced by NASA's representative Brian Kumanchik, the lead and the art director of this project.[/font][/color]
[color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'] Brian is a veteran of interactive CG who migrated to Blender 6 years ago. The [/font][/color]decision of NASA engineers[color=rgb(0,35,80)][font='Open Sans Light'] to adopt Blend4Web for the Mars rover simulator was due to a number of reasons including the fact that it works in browsers without plug-ins, is open source, is integrated with Blender and offers a fully-fledged physics engine out of the box.[/font][/color]
