Unlimited 3D

From sound to swimwear, nothing is left two-dimensional

Implications - Entertainment was once the primary engine for 3D technology, beckoning viewers with its promise of extreme, in-depth and in-your-face theatrics. While 3D technology was applied to some industries like printing and computer graphics when it was first conceived, until now, 3D hasn’t taken shape in very many other product categories. Now you will find 3D elements in everything from tourism to tattoos, and industries from fashion to sports are getting in on the action, hoping to help quench the consumer thirst for high-impact experiences.
