3D web apps

If there’s one thing a country struggling with obesity doesn’t need, it’s more interesting televisions. From the news coming out of the recent CES show, that’s exactly what we’re getting: 3D TV is coming!

If you’ve never experienced 3D TV, you may not understand the hoopla. Doesn’t regular TV work fine? Why do I need 3D? I’ll warn you though…when you try it, you won’t want to go back.

What happens if you apply the 3D concept to your business applications? I’m not talking about reports that pop off the screen…though that would be interesting. I’m talking about adding another dimension to your applications.

For example, business applications display clickable business data. If you want to drill down deeper, you click a link. What if you didn’t need to click that link? What if you could hover over the data and instantly see more information? It’s a more intuitive and simpler way to work. It cuts out a lot of hyperlinks and back buttons, saving time in the long run and giving you more intelligent applications.

If you want to see an example of this, click here. Hover over the little callout icons () to “drill down”.
