Submitter name

Dong Ping, Huawei


This idea is (CHOOSE ONE):

    • A specific technology area that requires new standardization (e.g. structured vocabularies, privacy, REST)

One Hundred Word Description of the Idea

Similar to the Declarative 3D for the Web Architecture Community Group, we are proposing to address the native support of interactive 3D graphics capabilities into the W3C technology stack. These should cover the majority of 3D use cases for the Web - but not necessarily all of them. There are upcoming open (e.g., WebGL) and proprietary (e.g., Adobe) proposals for imperative graphics APIs in the Web context and we propose to create a way to add interactive high-level declarative 3D objects to the HTML-DOM to allow anyone to easily create, share, and experience interactive 3D graphics - with possibly wide ranging effects similar to those caused by the broad availability of video on the Web.

Benefit(s) to Web or W3C

Better 3D graphics

Which of our stakeholders would be the most enthusiastic in supporting

Huawei, generally browser vendors and device manufacturers
