Thanks for sharing this!

I'd like to add that there's also work being done currently for
bringing WebGL visualization to the notebook via VisPy. We don't use
three.js but custom WebGL code generated by Python. The WebGL backend
currently requires a live Python server, but a standalone version is
also in the pipes.
