CubicVR, a 3D engine written in C++, was ported to JavaScript using WebGL, and shown off by a pretty awesome tech demo (Flight of the Navigator) at Mozilla's Web o' Wonder:

Now the engine's creator, Charles Cliffe, has dived deeper into WebGL and created an impressively smooth-wobbling cube implementing dynamic VBO rebuffering (see OpenGL spec here):

The new demo takes better advantage of WebGL's awesome: if you've got a good GPU, the wobbly cube implementing the VBO extension should run much faster than the Flight of the Navigator.

The project is on github, and is worth poking around.
