Custom Content and Software Development
||QuantumWorks Corporation offers custom graphics software development,
specializing in 3D graphics based PC and web-based rich media applications, intended for "human users",
ranging from new authoring tools (such as the SpotMaster tool shown on left), games, engineering product simulation
to animation plug-in design. (SpotMaster sample videos click here)
For needed software intended for human users, an important part of our services, is to help our clients spend their
development funds wisely, by focusing our "modified spiral/iterative" software development methods, not
only on the actual application development, but also to use these development methods on the creation of the OPTIMAL APPLICATION DESIGN,
prior to commencing relatively expensive software development. This strategy has been proven by industry leaders
to not only save companies immediate development funds but over the product lifecycle, through actual usage, greater
savings are realized. (Reference of similar design methodologies - Stanford
University lecture by Dr. William "Bill" Buxton : http://tinyurl.com/BBuxton-S-ED )

Custom Application Development Examples:
- AT&T Cybercathlon game
QWC designed and produced a special type of interactive experience tied into AT&Ts Olympics involvement called
Cybercathlon. Cybercathlon was originally designed as a Web/CD-ROM hybrid with large prize awards. Due to large
security risks, product was re-configured into CD-ROM game which was distributed to over 300,000 WorldNet subscribers.
- Procter & Gamble (P&G)
QWC proposed, designed and developed a revolutionary new system for P&G which will allow advertising creatives
to quickly storyboard many "spots or ad" concepts in 3D & 2D, greatly reducing costs and striving
for more effective breakthrough advertising through more concept creation and re-iteration. This application
was built from the QWC ConceptMaster technology code base.

technical paper describes one of the latest applications of Geppetto technology. ICCV99.pdf (~600K)
Under contract to Hasbro Toys, QuantumWorks Corporation (QWC) founders co-designed and co-led the development of
the first new generation VR helmet based 3D consumer game system, code names TOASTER, VR or RUSH and first ten
3D immersive games. Dedicated efforts as part of three executive team leading the three year development of the
Hasbro "VR", or "RUSH" or "Toaster" (3D video gaming system, the first helmet-mounted-display,
a.k.a. "HMD", 3D visual and audio video gaming system); the software development system and the Executive
Production of the first ten 3D VR immersive games. Co-design of two of these games. QWC founders led the game development in producing 12 prototype SGI based games. Derivatives
of these games made their way to Disney Quest LBE attractions. The
QWC founders also managed the peripherals design requirements effort.
