As the internet evolves, Web 3.0 is emerging as the new technological revolution, redefining the boundaries of how we interact with digital worlds. This in-depth paper explores Web 3.0’s potential to transform 3D visualization, with a specific insight into how Animech is positioning itself in this emerging era.

Web 3.0 – the platform for 3D visualization

Web 3.0 is the latest generation of the internet and is predicted to be the natural home of 3D visualization. Web 3.0 creates many new opportunities for the technology industry – and Animech can already provide the tools to suit this new era.

Everyone is on the internet. As it evolves and our use becomes more frequent, we learn what we like and what we don’t like.

The internet will more and more become the natural place for us to consume. Whether it’s food or shoes, people instinctively turn to the internet for answers to their questions.

Today, a record amount of consumption is being made online, with 58.4% of internet users buying something every week, according to Data Reportal. And by now, people are used to the generous supply of visuality while consuming. Over time, expectations will rise.

This places new demands on businesses to address. To keep up, they must offer customers the latest and most appealing technology. Did someone say Animech?

Web 3.0 – what is it?

The internet is arguably the most important technological revolution in human history.

Although the industry has evolved considerably since its inception, its current stage is akin to the car industry in 1920 – that is, it is a world-changing technology that has been around for 20 years but is still relatively immature and in need of major improvements.

Anyone who knows what the World Wide Web (WWW) is has probably heard the term Web 3.0 used a lot lately. Put simply, Web 3.0 is simply the next, decentralized iteration of the web, which will see extensive use of blockchain-like technology.

Before understanding the details of Web 3.0, it makes sense for us to understand what the web was like in the past, currently looks like in the present and how it contrasts with what it might be in the future.

It goes without saying, doesn’t it? For something to be 3.0, it must be preceded by 1.0 and 2.0. So, let’s go through the steps.

Web 1.0

In short, Web 1.0 is the initial web platform that emerged in the 90s. In this phase of the internet, the thresholds for publication were quite high. Building a website and getting it online was not something that ordinary people could do. But the changes would come…

Web 2.0

The next step was 2.0. Blogs, creative websites and apps made it easier for us ‘normal’ people to contribute and express ourselves online. Over time, there has been a complete shift towards different platforms taking over.

Apple, with the App Store and Facebook, became dominant and gained power from here. This is the stage of the internet that most of us are familiar with by now.

What does Web 3.0 provide?

We don’t know for sure yet, but enthusiasts predict that the internet will function in a more decentralized way, where we can not only read and create, but also own things digitally.

The very basis for this is the blockchain. The best-known use case for blockchain technology is cryptocurrency, such as bitcoin, which has already become ‘a thing’. The blockchain is used for cryptocurrencies to keep a public log of all transactions. In recent years, various smart contracts and so-called NFTs have also proliferated. If Web 3.0 takes off, it means that more and more applications and products will move to interact with the blockchain.

In practice, this would mean that it would be possible to shift power from large platforms to users. Because if they have a stake in the blockchain, they can also influence its development. No single authority should be able to control developments and there should be full transparency.

Web 3.0 and Animech innovations

Animech has long been at the forefront of 3D visualization technology, offering products that create vibrant and engaging digital experiences. With the arrival of Web 3.0, an era characterized by decentralization and advanced blockchain technology, Animech is ready to take its 3D solutions to the next level. This section explores how Web 3.0 enables easier use and wider applications of Animech’s already impressive portfolio.

Unreal4Web – A portal to the future

Animech’s collaboration with Epic Games has resulted in Unreal4Web, an innovative solution that for the first time enables the rendering of Unreal Engine 3D models directly in the browser. This tool represents a significant leap forward for interactive 3D visualization on the internet, offering unparalleled realism and user experience without the need for heavy downloads or special software.

Aniconfigurator – Tailoring your digital reality

With Web 3.0, the concept of online personalization is being transformed. Aniconfigurator, a solution from Animech, illustrates this change perfectly.

This section explores the impact of Anipart on learning and customer support, and how the Web 3.0 era can further enhance its effectiveness.

Web 3.0 – More than technology

Beyond its technical aspects, Web 3.0 represents a cultural and ideological shift towards a more open, accessible and fair internet. By decentralizing control and improving user data protection, Web 3.0 is predicted to reduce the dominance of the big tech giants and create a more democratic digital environment. This section reflects on the major societal changes that Web 3.0 may bring, and how Animech and its products fit into this new world.
