"Dali is an open-source engine for 3D User Interfaces. It is a core component (3DUI) of the Tizen platform for digital lifestyle devices, from wearables, to smartphones, to TVs, to appliances such as fridges. It allows applications on those devices to have animation-rich user interfaces running at 60 Hz, hiding away the lower-level APIs like OpenGL ES, and the background threads for world state update, render, and asynchronous resource loading, so application developers can get on with building functionality. It is also cross-platform capable, with development possible on Ubuntu 14.04, and has an adaptor layer which abstracts it from the underlying platform."
