Well, after looking at the website, the product and as mentioned the font, I assume this thread is going to go up like a blowtorch to napalm.

lol 3d websites, sounds very efficient. Great screenshot too all it need is a lensflare.

the internet is mostly text, some is sound, video or images. All of which are 2 dimensional. What does 3d add to that, navigation ? a game like interface for people who like to run around for 15 minutes in virtual space to find the www.maxforums.org 3d object ?

1. There is nothing wrong with Comic Sans. Your suggestion would be ?

2. Sure. Our prototype graphics need bringing up to commerical quality.

3. "Posting junk mail, blatant advertising, get rich schemes, chain letters and gimmicks are not acceptable here. Period. "

Guilty as charged of blatant advertising.
What is the point of a forum you cannot use to tell people about relevant new developments ?

4. "Well, after looking at the website, the product and as mentioned the font, I assume this thread is going to go up like a blowtorch to napalm."

You have not seen our website (its 3D and requires our 3D browser to view).
You've seen a couple of web *pages*.

5." You know that image you have of "the real 3d website"? You know what that is?" ... FAIL.

Can you do better ?

6."lol 3d websites, sounds very efficient. Great screenshot too all it need is a lensflare."

jpeg-2000 encoded images are very efficient. HTML pages use the older inferior original jpeg standard.
3D data xml-encoded, lzma compressed. html is compressed using ... err ... nothing. Is is sent as plain text.

6. the internet is mostly text, some is sound, video or images. All of which are 2 dimensional. What does 3d add to that, navigation ?

Lets find out.

7. a game like interface for people who like to run around for 15 minutes in virtual space to find the www.maxforums.org 3d object ?

A first person interface is the way we perceive the real world.

Guys this is all experimental stuff.

Best regards,

> Bring back VRML..

(I know you're joking), but VRML sucks. As does X3D which is the w3c's recommended 3D format, which is an xml wrapper around VRML, resulting in an overly complicated, bloated mess.

That's why I invented XSG, which is a clean XML based grammar that describes directed scene graphs used to describe 3D scenes.

Graphics tech is first generation single texture, vertex lighting for now.

Pixel shaders, etc. in R&D, will be available soon.
