[Tech] VRML RSS Reader

(Via), Newsworld is the world's first 3D RSS reader in the form of a VRML scene. I don't know if any of you already dealt with VRML but anyway... I don't like it but the project is funny, mixing cutting edge tech (RSS) and old-school 3d: vrml is neal steaphenson's snowcrash oriented, so it's a kind of tribute to old cyberpunk concepts. It is a joke or what?
