Python and OpenGL on Nokia Phones

Standard

Sitting here at ETech, just after Erik Smartt, product manager for the Python on Nokia product, gave the first real public demo of the Symbian/Series 60 port of Python. The highlight was a PyOpenGL demo (the code isn’t available yet, and the author is not public either). Click on the picture for the Quicktime movie.

As someone who worked on PyOpenGL a long, long time ago on high end Silicon Graphics workstations, it’s fairly stunning to see it fit into a pocket.

Also notable was a demo of the FlashLite stuff, which is equally cool, but probably available elsewhere (if not, I’ll post a movie later).
