One of the research areas of the TOT project (the host of pixelTANGO
development) is lightTWIST on the same old www.tot.sat.qc.ca. This will
eventually work with pd/Gem and pixelTANGO as it is already openGL and
controlled from PD.

Only problem being is that it is very HW Dependant, each projector has
its own shuttle and render commands are sent over GB multicast. All TOT
software projects are GPL and so this could be a great place to start.
Also a group a McGill in Montreal is working exactly chromium
integration in Gem to create an AV cube "save" check the gem-dev
archives... I think its in there. I've cced Mike Wozniewski on this
topic, I've not checked into their progress in some time.

Keep in touch about this project, sounds interesting.
