How GPUs will drive GUI designs and the 3D Web


I ran into this nVidia concept GUI for phone devices. It is just another example on how GPUs are going to shape GUI designs and expose new user immersive experience on the emerging 3D Web.

Experiencing The 3D Web From Your Sony PS3

 

Sony announced today at GDC'07 they are entering the 3D Virtual World market with the PS3 "PlayStation Home" service. With SecondLife, There, Active Worlds, Kaneva, and now PlayStation Home, we may be looking at a significant shift in GUI design that may fundamentally change the way users access and experience applications in the emerging 3D WebPowerful GPUs can now be used to deliver a richer and enhanced 3D Virtual World immersing experience for the Web.

I think I have seen this before :-)

A nice recognition for Project Looking Glass contributions to advance 3D desktop GUI (and Vista :-) and building a platform-independent interface to the emerging 3D Web. If you haven't tried Looking Glass, please check the latest Looking Glass 1.0 Release. Easy to install and lot of good feedbacks from the OpenSUSE and Ubuntu Linux communities.

The 3D Web: Time to dump your mouse, create an avatar and learn how to use a game pad!

While everybody is talking about Web 2.0, a more silent revolution may be happening on the Web (so SL is trying to change this!) that may have a profound impact in the way we will be deploying and interacting with Web applications in the near future. Mich Wagner captured this fairly well in his article Virtual Worlds: The Next Big Thing Or Next Big Nothing?

"A generation of young people is growing up hacking and slashing their way through virtual worlds -- that's literally true in the case of World of Warcraft -- and they're going to expect a 3-D, virtual world interface for the rest of their online interaction."

As with new emerging technology the jury is still out, but a few big players like Sun and IBM are starting to take notice:

"There is something very human about visual interfaces. I almost think of text-based interfaces, including browsers, as 'narrowband' into our brains, whereas visual interfaces are 'broadband' into our brains."

So, dump your mouse, create your avatar, learn how to use a game pad  (nice to be able to use both hands and more than three buttons finally :-) and join the 3D Web Virtual world with "broadband" interaction into your brain!
