A Qwest for 3D Realism

August 22, 2007


From the reflection in a mirror to the ripples of water in a pool, 3Dwalkthroughs.com is committed to creating the most realistic 3D Walkthroughs, 3D Renderings and 3D Floor Plans in the industry.

It is our belief that the more realistic the visual, the greater the chance that a potential buyer/renter will have an emotional response.

As per one of our previous posts it is proven that Gen X’ers are more likely to buy or rent a property if they have an emotional response to it. Fortunately for property owners and developers, this emotion can be achieved even before the property is built…enter 3Dwalkthroughs.com

Logitech MX Air Mouse with 3D capabilities

August 21, 2007


3dwalkthroughs.com has been actively looking for a device to improve the experience of navigating in a 3D environment. As our 3D Walkthroughs and 3D Floor Plans continue to evolve towards increased interactivity this need is becoming even more important.

We have recently come across the new Logitech MX Air Mouse with 3D capabilities and are interested to get feedback from people whoe have tried it.

The initial reviews include a: a nice charging stand, a long range offered by the propriety 2.4GHz wireless connection, and a dynamic scrolling feature (similar to the iPhone’s “kinetic scrolling”). Reviewers note that the 3D capabilities are best achieved if the MX Air is held like a remote, rather than like a mouse.

Aside from navigating our 3D Walkthrough products these tools will also become more valuable as the social networking platforms merge with virtual world platforms.

Any reviews from users would be much appreciated.

3D Marketing Tools + Traditional Marketing Tools = Success

August 20, 2007


3Dwalkthroughs.com strongly believes it takes a combination of 3D marketing tools and traditional marketing tools to realize a successful property marketing campaign.

Creating a superior 3D Walkthrough, 3D Rendering, 3D Floor Plan or Interactive 3D Walkthrough will have little effect if they do not get any exposure due to a weak traditional marketing strategy. Furthermore, even if these tools are seen, and an interest is peaked, a closing and follow up strategy needs to be in place.

We just recently came across a press release from an advertising firm, Vitamin, that is expanding it’s focus to the creation of marketing campaigns for developers, owners, property managers, architects, engineers and suppliers. The company has an impressive website and roster of clients. They are definitely a company worth considering if you are looking to launch a marketing campaign in the industries in which they are focused.

BALTIMORE, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Michael Karfakis, president/CEO of
the boutique design and marketing firm, Vitamin(R), announced today the
firm’s continuing expansion in the architecture industry. With Karfakis’
announcement, Vitamin adds GWWO, Inc./Architects to the firm’s established
roster of architecture, engineering, construction and commercial real
estate clients.

Karfakis said, “For the past several years, Vitamin’s niche in the real
estate and built markets has grown steadily. Our work spans the industry,
and includes marketing campaigns for developers, owners, property managers,architects, engineers, and suppliers.”
