Altadyn Invents "Meet in 3D" Button for Any Corporate Web SiteCustomized 3D Spaces and Virtual Worlds With Avatars Starting at $4,995 Now Accessible to All (September 03, 2008)
IRVINE, CA and PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 09/03/08 -- Altadyn, the developer of 3DXplorer, the first "plug-in-less," browser-based web3D platform, today announced the invention of "Meet in 3D," a new concept to standardize immersive and interactive 3D spaces and virtual worlds on corporate web sites. "Meet in 3D" is intended to establish a new standard navigation component, on par with the commonly-used links on the main navigation bar of web sites such as Home, Products, Company, Contact Us, and so on, allowing businesses to add immersive 3D virtual experiences for interacting with web visitors who until now have largely remained anonymous.
"Meet in 3D" enables visitors to a company's web site to enter a custom 3D space to locate information and engage and interact directly with company representatives using customizable avatars. In addition to communicating via text chat, integrated Skype calling, or using traditional conference call services, avatars can move and explore in real-time, such as walking around a room, down corridors and up staircases. Avatars can interact, react and express emotions, including shaking hands, shaking their heads yes or no, smiling, laughing, thinking, and so on.
"We believe our 'Meet in 3D' concept is a critical element of Web 3.0," said Darius Lahoutifard, CEO of Altadyn. "Since the inception of the web, businesses have invested billions to identify and track largely anonymous visitors to their web sites. At first, with Web 1.0, communication was unidirectional, from companies to their web visitors. With Web 2.0 and the widespread acceptance of tools like blogs and social networks, individuals started expressing themselves, but not necessarily to corporations, so businesses still struggle to monetize Web 2.0. With Web 3.0 and technologies like 3DXplorer, individuals are motivated to enter informative and entertaining 3D web spaces with their avatars, enabling corporations to finally bridge this gap. They can now directly engage prospects and customers in a personal and interactive environment, in a manner similar to the way they do in everyday life when exploring a tradeshow, attending a seminar or walking into a store."
An example of the "Meet in 3D" button integrated into a corporate website is available at Altadyn's website at www.altadyn.com.
