3D Floor Plans Used For Hotel Marketing

January 30, 2008


3Dwalkthroughs.com is launching a new line of products focused on the Hotel industry. The first product to be released is a realistic 3D Floor Plan of a hotel room. The plans can be created from 2D Floor Plans, CAD files and reference pictures of the hotel rooms finishing details.

We believe this product will be extremely valuable for travelers that want to get a true sense of the layout of their hotel room before they book. Most hotel websites include basic photos of room types and some have 2D Floor Plans or even virtual tours. In many cases these media types are confusing and do not do a good job at providing an easy to understand representation of a rooms layout.

We have just started to develop this product for a few test hotels within a major franchise. Once we determine the best vantage points to show a hotel room we plan on introducing this product to other hotel chains across the country.

If other media types exist, we can attach them to a fully branded interface, making the 3D Floor Plan interactive. We will be launching this demo in the next few weeks.

Tsu-Shi-O-Mi – 3D Virtual Humanoid

January 30, 2008

Japanese researcher, Michihiko Shoji, has helped to create U-Tsu-Shi-O-Mi, a virtual humanoid designed as a tool for enhancing virtual reality simulations.
Tsu-Shi-O-Mi uses “green screen” technology to project a 3D virtual avatar onto a robot. When wearing a special head-mounted display, movements of the robot are synced with the 3D avatar, resulting in an interactive virtual 3D character that the viewer can reach out and touch.

In its current form Tsu-Shi-O-Mi requires a lot of bulky and expensive equipment but Mr. Shoji is actively working to streamline the technology. Initially it is believed the technology will be used for arcade games, but in the future Mr. Shoji believes the technology be improved to the point where Tsu-Shi-O-Mi can take many different forms and even be suitable for home use.

Please let us know when the technology improves to the level that 3Dwalkthroughs.com can use Tsu-Shi-O-Mi to increase our staff.

SceneWeaver – Easily Export 3D Scenes Across All Platforms

January 28, 2008


SceneCaster, a 3D social media application and online community gives users the ability to visualize their ideas, share them, and make them real. SceneCaster bridges the gap between the virtual and real worlds by linking the 3D Web experience to online storefronts, product catalogs from leading brands and retailers, social networks, and consumers’ dreams.

Launced in 2007, SceneCaster has just announced a major upgrade to their SceneCaster platform. The new feature called SceneWeaver was designed to provide users with more exportable options for 3D scenes created with its application.

One of the huge features of Sceneweaver is that it allows scenes created with SceneCaster, to maintain it’s interactive features, even when it is embedded into other websites, blogs or social networks.

SceneWeaver is being touted as a great new advertising tool as it allows scene creators to embed real consumer products which can be purchased directly from the site. SceneWeaver has also become one of the most popular 3D applications on Facebook.

3Dwalkthroughs.com
believes we will look back on SceneWeaver in a few years as the application that helped us take the first big step towards a completely 3D internet.
