W3D Plugin Aims to Make Interactive 3D Websites Pervasive
W3D plugin allows you to build highly interactive websites using research based innovations in 3D cursors and elastic textures
The W3D Project aims to make the process of adding 3D interactions (through depth perception and interactivity)
This plugin has been built after 2 years of research provided by partner organizations, in how cursors should behave in pseudo-3D space; elastic textures that provide a sense of touch and depth; as well as pseudo-haptic textures that optically induce relief in textures by adjusting the speed of the mouse pointers. It has content sliders (including background parallax slider, mouse motion parallax slider, 3D box slider) as well as grid layouts with multiple effects.
W3D is useful for website developers, marketing/branding managers, and design agencies. While the applications of the technology are wide, it can specifically be beneficial for serious games, interactive educational courses, online healthcare services, high-experience brand store-fronts, and more.
"The aim of the W3D project is to create immersive websites or web UI elements giving the user a real sensation of depth in a 2D environment." Says CEO, Regis Le Guennec, "Our main goal is to create "pseudo 3D" elements with only vision and interaction effects but no specific equipment like 3D glasses, screens or mice."
This initial version of the plugin will be completely free and available on WP's official repository as well as on this link (http://wordpress.mba-
