Product and Technology Virtualization is a sure-fire way to convey the details of your product or technology to end-users. Users can zoom into the product components, take them apart without fear of breakage, examine the product to see how it works, and more. Product Simulation is directly applicable to a number of industries, including Consumer Electronics and Computers, Fashion, Construction, Pharmaceutical, Fashion, Food & Beverage, Retail, Entertainment, Education, Training, Furniture, Tools, Landscaping, Solar, R&D, Digital Signage, Kiosks, Publishing, etc.
For the past decade, every PC has OpenGL hardware and software that allow 3D data and instructions to be processed in real-time. This "graphics co-processing" is done by the 3D Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), which is often as fast or sometimes faster than the PCs main processor, also known as the CPU (Central Processing Unit). Product Virtualization thus requires we create the 3D data for each product component to be created, link those into a hierarchy, encode each with program logic dictating the product's operation, develop textures for all components using imaging software, keyframe/code all product simulation animation, and create a 3D UI.
