Play games like Mass Effect 2 in your browser!
Apparently two companies are working on getting full on 3D games working in your browser. Mass Effect being one of them. The technology behind this is cloud computing. Basically when you make a move in a game. It is interpreted via the servers, the frame rate etc is calculated and the video is streamed back to your browser. Interesting stuff.
One slight issue is the lag and latency. For a browser based gaming platform though it’s pritty cool.

Retired programmer, due to health issues. But I cooked code for over 21 years just about. Command leader of SGUK-1. Fun bunch of people that like to play and are passionate about Stargate and any games out there.
Unfortunately the Stargate games came to an end. So now I research video games and advise on things.
