OpenROAD: Showing Off All The Khronos APIs

The Khronos Group released OpenROAD today at SIGGRAPH 2014 showing off all of their cross-platform, industry-standard APIs.

OpenROAD is an animated video featuring all of the royalty-free APIs out of Khronos working together in an "open ecosystem". There's OpenCL, OpenCL, OpenSL ES, OpenMAX, OpenVX, WebGL, and WebCL.

It would have been nice if they released the complex demos against the different APIs as open-source, but for now you can just watch the video (embedded below) and learn more at AccelerateYourWorld.org.
