Flight of the Navigator

One cool example of HTML5 audio and video is The Flight of the Navigator demo. It was built by Mozilla and requires Firefox 4 to watch it. It may look like a video at first, but it's actually a 3-D rendering using JavaScript. It's a pretty impressive use of a number of new web technologies including HTML5 video for the embedded videos you'll see throughout, HTML5 audio for the sounds and queued actions which I have on mute, but you will be able to hear them when you view it, and then WebGL and the Canvas for 3-D rendering.

You can see pull in photos from the live Flickr API, as well as tweets from Twitter, so every time you watch it, it will be a little different. So if you want to what we will soon be able to do with HTML5 and JavaScript, this is a good site to check out.
