Interesting, thanks for the many answers.

I agree, building ROS apps for the browser is generally preferable for 
portability reasons.  I don't know whether a fullfledged rviz is doable 
inside the browser, however. wviz looks nice, though.

@Dave: Working together on this sounds like a great idea. I was thinking 
of handing this out as a student project as well. Once I've found 
someone Ill contact you to see where we can contribute.
