3D Brwosing- SpaceTime Software

 

You can Watch a demo of the interface above adn the software is still in Beta and needs a powerful PC.. for a review see excerpt Via  Renderosity  “When it comes to computers, the technology has reached a point where we have opened doors for nearly any possibility you can imagine, especially when it comes to 3D graphics. It was obvious it was only a matter of time before people started using 3D technology on the web. If you’ve been keeping up with the news you may remember an article about using 3D software to create environments to be used inside your browser (if you have used TruePlace to browse the Renderosity 3D Gallery you are familiar with that technology). Although SpaceTime doesn’t use 3D technology that way, it does offer a very interesting way to look at the web”…. <Full Article>

The SpaceTime browser is a software designed to work as a “virtual desktop” for web browsing (please note this has nothing to do with the “virtual desktop managers” that everybody should be familiar with).

Will VuDu Leapfrog Apple TV and Netflix?


“Truth is, life is teeming with opportunities to see movies: movie theaters, video stores, DVD-by-mail services, TV movie channels, pay-per-view, video-on-demand, Xbox 360, iTunes, Internet downloads, hotel rooms, airplanes and so on.

But according to the team at Vudu, all of those outlets are flawed.

Video stores: you have to drive back and forth, and the movie you want might be out of stock. Netflix and Blockbuster by mail: you have to wait a day or two for each movie to arrive. Pay-per-view, video-on-demand, Xbox, iTunes and hotel rooms: puny movie selections. Internet downloads: they arrive on your computer, not your TV.

Vudu’s new $400 movie box, to be available at month’s end, has none of those problems. It’s a little black box (about 7 by 9 by 2 inches) that connects to your TV and to the Internet through a high-speed link — and it comes darned close to putting a video store in your house. Its built-in hard drive permits your choice of 5,000 movies to begin playing instantaneously. There’s no computer involved, no waiting and no monthly fee”…. <More>
