    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,
