Finially… After a long long period of silence I got myself back together and now I’ll start to write again.
A few months ago I started to develop with Adobe Flex. Quite interesting and sort of easy to use but I got really interested when I stumbled upon Away3D and Papervision3D. Those two are 3D engines for Flash… yes… 3D and not like the good old Shockwave Flash. No, fully fledged “high” performance 3D engines even suitable to program little games with them. I was amazed by the capabilities of those two engines and directly dove into developing small test applications and I am currently working on two websites using Papervision3D.
I will post more in the next few weeks about my progress in developing those two applications but in the meantime you can check out some really cool websites developed with PPV3D and Away3D:
Some superb 3D User Interface ideas can be seen at AIRFORCE.com’s Supercar site.
Powerflasher’s “PDF Book 3D” tool uses Away3D to breathe fresh air into your run-of-the-mill 2D page flip book viewer
