Jacek Jankowski, Izabela Irzynska "On The Way to The Web3D: The Applications of 2-Layer Interface Paradigm", Proceedings of the Irish Human Computer Interaction Conference '08, 2008.
The use of the Internet for entertainment continues to grow. The success of rich media web portals, such as: YouTube, Flickr, or Google Maps proves that people look for more and more interactive experience on the Web. In this paper, we briefly report our previous work related to the human-computer interaction discipline: we describe 2- Layer Interface Paradigm (2LIP) - a new way for designing interactive 3D web applications, and its prototype implementation ¿ Copernicus, the 3D Encyclopedia. We present new possible applications of 2LIP, among others: personal 3D backgrounds, 3D applications in the touristic information and in the museums, interactive internet shopping, and commercials embedded into web portals. All propositions aforementioned give the idea of a new generation of the Web3D interfaces. Those interfaces can enrich interactive experience of people on the Web; at the same time, they remain simple and intuitive in use.
