Product Simulations
Customizers, configurators & savings calculators

An online product “customizer” or “configurator” lets the user experiment with options and colors, then see the results. 3D chair configurator with color choices and e-commerce shopping cart button This activity engages the user much more deeply than simply reading options from a list. My customizers can be 2D, 3D or photographic, and can connect directly to online stores. They can also be installed in retail kiosks and interactive touch displays.

Savings and Benefit Calculators

For products and services with a cost or profit advantage, a custom calculator can be very persuasive. Users can enter the details of their own situations, try different “what if” scenarios, and immediately see what the benefits would be.

Interactive 3D for Web and Kiosks

Engaging 3D experiences can now be developed rapidly at low cost, using the Unity engine and WebGL to deliver console-level graphics, physics and sound.

Play with options, get instant price updates, and see your creation from all angles—a strong incentive to buy. This 3D experience works on iPad, iPhone, Android and Windows Phone but without rotation. Or, if delivered as a free mobile app download, it could have full 3D effects.
