threex.keyboardstate is a threex game extension for three.js which makes it easy to keep the current state of the keyboard. It is possible to query it at any time. No need of an event. This is particularly convenient in loop driven case, like in 3D demos or games. The syntax of the keys has been copied from jquery keyboard plugin to ease configuration. It can help you control the characters of your three.js games.
