The Use of 3D Technology in Computers
The 3D technology in computers has come a long way ever since its inception. Improving in performance while decreasing in cost, meanwhile the computers too have become more powerful and less costly than in the past and can better handle 3D technology. Today, people want to experience 3D not only in games but also in such activities as Web, corporate presentations and learning.
Use of 3D technology in computers is evident in the 3D acceleration and other types of 3D technology being placed in almost all the computers. But still, we can say that using 3D technology in computers is still in its nascent stage. Although 3D technology is turning very useful for design and architectural applications, it really hasn't found any killer application outside of video games. Therefore, consumers, for both small and large businesses, have still not flocked to the technology.
But the advancements in technology are slowly driving the PC hardware capabilities up and prices down. Therefore the use of 3D technology in computers will definitely be on the rise and more accessible to consumers. Further research is still going on methods and algorithms. Many of the essential algorithms are encoded in hardware or are available through graphics APIs.
Meanwhile, to encourage the 3D technology in computers, improvements in motherboard- have enabled the competent internal transfer of massive 3D datasets and large bitmap graphics. There is better software for creating 3D textures and animation that have definitely made 3D technology more desirable.
The 3D technology and its potential are developing faster. It has been estimated that the sales of 3D software for both occasional as well as professional workstation-based users will continue to increase steadily in the coming years. Using 3D technology in computers will some be a normal thing.
