Update on Virtual Product

For months now I’ve been trying to come up with a virtual 3d product display using video game engines. The idea is simple: instead of playing games, you “play” a product to see how it works. It’s the next best thing to getting to actually touch the product, and you’ll be able to see it on your web browser.

But after months of testing game engines, I’ve found … they’re not there yet. Meaning they’re still very limited as far as advanced reflections go. Unless of course you want to drop 20 to 100K on licenesing. That’s where I get limited.

So being to dumb to give up, I’m now working on combining traditional 2D and 3D with Flash. Here is a sample render of the 3d model I made of my espresso machine. (looks real doesn’t it?)


Here I rendered it down to just lines in a simple animation.
