Croquet uses OpenGL API for 3D visualization with massively multi-user peer-to-peer collaboration

Croquet is a combination of computer software and network architecture that supports deep collaboration and resource sharing among large numbers of users within the context of a large-scale distributed information system. Along with its ability to deliver compelling 3D visualization and simulations, the Croquet system’s components are designed with a focus on enabling massively multi-user peer-to-peer collaboration and communication.  Croquet utilizes an OpenGL API-based graphics engine and a semi-retained graphical engine pipeline, with a rendering hierarchy based upon dynamically composeable objects, with each of these objects having full access to the OpenGL API libraries. Developers have the ability to make direct calls to the OpenGL library at any of the nodes making it possible for them to extend the rendering engine in virtually unlimited ways.
