Applicable Scenes

In events using a variety of virtual spaces, this system can also be used like a review site by showing rankings and user comments. Using the virtual space as an exhibit room, 3D models and animations reproducing the actual design works in addition to the information panels for each project can be displayed. Moreover, since this system is an web application, it can be used freely anywhere at any time.

As a case example, the system was used for the judging of this year's Cloud Programming World Cup and Virtual Design World Cup.
