Crystal Cutter is a 3D modelling tool designed using the CrystalSpace 3D API.
 +
The primary goal of this project is to produce a modelling tool that is
 +
relatively easy to use and enables normally non-artistic people (like me) to
 +
create relatively decent works of 3D art without having to master complicated
 +
controls.

The "Web" as we know it today is fundamentally 2-dimensional, made up of
 +
three crucial components namely the NameServers, WebServers and WebBrowsers.
 +
 +
All these components were fundamentally designed to create and show simple
 +
2-dimensional pages over http (hypertext transfer protocol) using TCP/IP. No
 +
doubt many attempts have been made to create plug-ins for browsers that
 +
allow you to see something in 3D, or actually 2.5-d, but since these are
 +
just add-ons and the fundamental components of the Web remain the same, the
 +
quality of this so-called 3D content is usually poor and the amount of
 +
content that can be created and displayed is very limited.
 +
 +
A true 3D World Wide Web would require 3 things:
 +
 +
# 3D-Web Servers and 3D-Web Browsers built on a true 3D technology.
 +
# A workable commercial model that would allow millions of people/companies around the world to set-up 3D Web Servers.
 +
# Possibility for professionals/IT companies around the world to easily learn how to create 3D-WebSites and offer this service to their clients.
 +
 +
The target of project Festonia is to achieve all these things. The first
 +
alpha 0.01 version of the 3dWebBrowser has already been completed and in
 +
testing. Work on the 3DWebServer component is in progress and its planed to
 +
be released in second quarter of 2007 to all our partner companies around
 +
the world.

Contents

3DMedia

3DMedia is a Belgian academic research project on the production, the processing and the exploitation of rich audiovisual content, with a specific focus on HD-TV and digital cinema.

Right now, the model of the environment is finished and soon it's time to try out Planeshift engine. The application has been designed in order to avoid typical problems of Virtual Environments, like idleness.

VOS

What is VOS?

Our motivation is build "The Metaverse": a shared, collaborative, dynamic, multipurpose 3D virtual environment running on an interlinked system of Internet sites. The Virtual Object System (VOS) is the software infrastructure and applications we have developed to make this vision real. Over time it has evolved and proven to be a powerful tool for a broad range of network applications, while achieving our original goal of supporting multiuser collaborative environments.

The Interreality project has worked closely with Crystal Space for many years. In addition to the Crystal Space-based VOS 3D Multiuser World Browser Ter'Angreal, we develop and maintain the Crystal Space VOS plugin which makes it extremely easy to start using VOS in your own project.

World Wide 3dWeb

Festonia is the internal codename of the World Wide 3dWeb project which is aimed at creating, well, a world-wide 3D-web! :)

The "Web" as we know it today is fundamentally 2-dimensional, made up of three crucial components namely the NameServers, WebServers and WebBrowsers.

All these components were fundamentally designed to create and show simple 2-dimensional pages over http (hypertext transfer protocol) using TCP/IP. No doubt many attempts have been made to create plug-ins for browsers that allow you to see something in 3D, or actually 2.5-d, but since these are just add-ons and the fundamental components of the Web remain the same, the quality of this so-called 3D content is usually poor and the amount of content that can be created and displayed is very limited.

A true 3D World Wide Web would require 3 things:

  1. 3D-Web Servers and 3D-Web Browsers built on a true 3D technology.
  2. A workable commercial model that would allow millions of people/companies around the world to set-up 3D Web Servers.
  3. Possibility for professionals/IT companies around the world to easily learn how to create 3D-WebSites and offer this service to their clients.

The target of project Festonia is to achieve all these things. The first alpha 0.01 version of the 3dWebBrowser has already been completed and in testing. Work on the 3DWebServer component is in progress and its planed to be released in second quarter of 2007 to all our partner companies around the world.
