Away3D = Games, Infographics and Online Applications

by Peter Kapelyan

Away3D has recently seen a sudden increase in commercial use - now including areas such as Education, Gaming, and Online Applications. The following content shows a sample of what's currently being powered by the Away3d Engine.

Discovery Channel

EffectiveUI launchs an application for the Discovery Channel called "Discovery Earth Live" which lets you visualize different scientific data on an interactive 3D globe, as well as read about news stories around the world; the data is both images and video, and you can adjust layering and opacities of different layers in real-time as the globe spins.
In otherwords: Really Awesome.

[...] Away 3d features Empressr on their site today. We love Away 3d, we used the very cool technology for the 3d transitions in Empressr. We plan on offering a lot more of them in the very near future. Take a look at the Empressr created showing a few of their 3d models. I think we should do this as animation! I’ll get back to you on that one, I need to get the raw files to create those. [...]

Discovery Earth Live...

Discovery earth live, is one of the best uses I’ve seen of 3D online, it’s smooth, informative and the 3D adds to the experience but doesn’t take the focus out of the information that’s displaying.
Earth live is powered by Away...

Whoa, I think this is the future of games. I remember when I played the first QUAKE in nineties, I thought that was cool.

And this one is much more awesome!
