Bonus Demo: Enjoy one of our 3DVR objects of an advanced automobile in QuickTime (Size: 5.9 Mbytes, suggest to use DSL, or even better, cable modem, to download it). You'll need Apple's high quality, cross-platform QuickTime Player FREE from: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download to view this 3DVR object. Move the cursor left and right to enjoy the 3D view. Note, that in our Case Library we use a large number of even more interactive 3D objects and active code to explain complex challenges in a much more efficient and enjoyable way than what you can do with traditional printed, static, non-interactive textbooks... this demo is just one of the many hundreds of 3DVR objects we use in our Library...)
