GeoVector has announced the release of a new 3D search technology which will allow users to obtain information by selecting objects on a map displayed in 3D on the screen of their mobile phone. This 3D map, generated via GPS technology and a built-in compass, is said to create an intuitive means for the user to interact with the world around them. GeoVector’s 3D Search Technology will be presented at the NEC booth at Wireless Japan 2006, to be held July 19-21 in Tokyo.
GeoVector’s existing carrier-proven pointing based service has been successfully used by consumers in Japan since being launched with Mapion Local Search, Powered By GeoVector, on the KDDI network in January, 2006. GeoVector plans to soon release their services with Japan’s two other major carriers. Examples of this 3D technology can be seen Here.
Additionally, GeoVector and its partner Area/Code will be showing previews of pointing based real world games at Wireless Japan 2006. Please visit http://www.playareacode.com for more information.
