Ruby 3D

Hi, I know the answer but I try anyway : is there a well supported Ruby
binding to a good 3D engine ?

What I’ve found is a binding to irrlich which is rather old (2 years)
and an obsolete binding to Ogre3D

It’s quite strange : why a such good language does have nothing serious
when dealing with 3D ? Many interpreted languages does…

Anything I would have missed ?

Thanks !

Ruby’s threading model makes some of the techniques used problematic.

An updated Ogre3D binding was announced just last month:

Hope this helps,

There is a fairly new and active project called ogre.rb
http://ogrerb.rubyforge.org/

Might want to give it a look.
