The Gamepad API is a relatively new piece of technology that allows us to access the state of connected gamepads using JavaScript, which is great news for HTML5 game developers.

A lot of game genres, such as racing and platform fighting games, rely on a gamepad rather than a keyboard and mouse for the best experience. This means these games can now be played on the web with the same gamepads that are used for consoles.

This link provides a nice article about how to use the Gamepad API in games.

Accessing Your Webcam in HTML5

February 15, 2013 in Tutorial by admin

html5A nice tutorial from kirupa.com. Quoting from their article:

“Accessing your webcam via your browser used to involve a…pardon the profanity, a plugin. That’s right. In order to connect to a webcam and gain access to its video stream, you had to rely on something primarily created in Flash or Silverlight. While that approach certainly worked for browsers that supported plug-ins, it didn’t help for the increasing number of browsers that aim to be plugin-free. This inability to natively access the webcam without relying on 3rd party components was certainly a gap in the HTML development story. At least, that was the case until pretty recently.”
