General Web-Development Type Question...

This is related to that minor announcement I've yet to be fully prepared for, but I have a question about an effect I'd like to have implemented on the site for it (also yet to be designed at this stage).

I have some 3D geometry I'd like displayed in a window within the home page, looking something like this to start:

I'd like visitors to be able to rotate and spin that sucker. While being rendered in that fashion, against a white background, with no other shading. With no more to it than that, and visible/accessible in virtually every browser on the planet, on virtually every platform on the planet--extant or extinct (within reason, obviously), without duplicating any effort on my part.

(SGI users are familiar with the inventor viewer; that's similar to what I'm going for).

Question is, what's the best way to accomplish this? Anyone have any recommendations/suggestions for me?

I'm going to encourage everyone who means well, reads this, and has a blog to give this one a bump. As it stands as of this writing, someone with an Xbox360 is in front of Amanda's entry, and I think that this--at least this--needs to be rectified.

So please, vote not just once, but an inhuman number of times! Today, tomorrow, every day you have internet access with as many browsers as you can afford to install, and multiple times a day--let's vote for a stuffed brontosaur over some guy with an Xbox.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. But an Xbox isn't. Let's waste it.
