I believe Huihong Luo meant the OpenGLES emulation
currently used by Android emulator (correct me if I'm wrong):


And if I remember correctly, Huihong Luo is the creator
of LeapDroid emulator: http://www.leapdroid.com/
It's based on virtualbox and GLES pipes as I know.

Hello Huihong Luo,
I believe you are very proud about great work
you have done for the LeapDroid emulator.
However, you decided to discontinue the development
of LeapDroid due to your new job. What a pity!

May I give you a suggestion?
How about open source the LeapDroid emulator and
contribute it back to upstreams (virtualbox + android-x86)?
This is the only way that your nice work of LeapDroid
could benefit more people in the future.
Otherwise, soon or later, people will forget
your achievements. That's a pity!
