This book will show you how to apply OpenGL graphics programming techniques to any device running the iPhone OS -- including the iPad and iPod Touch -- with no iPhone development or 3D graphics experience required. iPhone 3D Programming provides clear step-by-step instructions, as well as lots of practical advice, for using the iPhone SDK and OpenGL. You'll build several graphics programs -- progressing from simple to more complex examples -- that focus on lighting, textures, blending, augmented reality, optimization for performance and speed, and much more. All you need to get started is a solid understanding of C++ and a great idea for an app.* Learn fundamental graphics concepts, including transformation matrices, quaternions, and more* Get set up for iPhone development with the Xcode environment* Become familiar with versions 1.1 and 2.0 of the OpenGL ES API, and learn to use vertex buffer objects, lighting, texturing, and shaders* Use the iPhone's touch screen, compass, and accelerometer to build interactivity into graphics applications* Build iPhone graphics applications such as a 3D wireframe viewer, a simple augmented reality application, a spring system simulation, and moreThis book received valuable community input through O'Reilly's Open Feedback Publishing System (OFPS).
