The primary application for the NeMo browser is the delivery of Web-based streaming 3D games, but it's also being used for interactive educational projects and walkthroughs.
The NeMo development software currently runs only on Windows. It allows developers to import models from other 3D programs, attach behaviors to them and graphically program interactivity. The development programs include NeMo Creation, which allows users to create interactive applications through a building-block, object-oriented system; and NeMo Dev, which enables high-level programmers to create new building blocks that fit into the NeMo graphical interface. No word yet from the company as to whether the development software will ever be available on the Mac.
Specifications for the Mac version of the NeMo players were not available at press time. On the Windows side, it requires little processing power but does require a graphics accelerator that supports Direct3D or OpenGL. It can run software-based OpenGL, but NeMo says it makes content almost unbearably slow. For more information, visit http://www.nemo.com.
