Babylon.Js Demos originally created/modified by "gryff" in Blender
My first major creation two months after beginning experimentation with Babylon.js. The original file size for the animated mesh was 7.05Mb but huge improvements to the Blender Exporter by JCPalmer have reduced the file size to 2.72Mb.

In 2014 a book was published claiming to have identified "Jack the Ripper" as one Aaron Kosminski by analyzing the DNA found on a "shawl" alleged taken from the scene of the murder of Catherine Eddowes (4th Ripper Victim).
The Eddowes connection to the "shawl" is based on a claim that the DNA shows a sequence mutation which is described as "314.1C". Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, the forensic scientist who invented DNA fingerprinting, describes this as an "error in nomenclature" for the very common sequence variation 315.1C. Wikipedia : Aaron Kosminski
The animated model shows how the end result for a mutation at 314 or 315 would be chemically identical.

Michael provided the Blender file and gave permission to use his model as a test of BJS. The original model I got from Michael has 4 textures for the house - diffuse, normal, specular, and shadow. However, each texture is extremely large (5000+ x 5000+) - a massive browser download.
So for this test the model was modified in Blender to use only a diffuse texture (2048x2048) with baked in shadows

This little demo started out as looking like a simple task but it turns out that creating maps for these old globes was quite a complex business and the skills of the old globe makers is impressive
The globe makers created strips of textures called "gores" which were then glued onto a sphere. No NASA maps back then !!
