Public beta of open source H3D OpenGL API-accelerated API for adding haptic (touch-enabled) support

H3D API is a C++ implementation of the X3D standard as an
open source API for the development of haptic (touch-enabled)
applications. H3D API uses the OpenGL API to support hardware accelerated graphics rendering as well as open source libraries such as Python, FreeImage, Xerces and GLEW. Haptic rendering is performed using SensAble Technologies Open Haptics SDK.  Haptic rendering can be easily disabled, allowing H3D to be optionally used as an X3D compliant API (X3D is the successor to VRML). Commercial, NON-GPL, licensing of H3D API is also available.
