What Company Is Offering:
URBii is an interactive platform which is combining traditional web browsing with 3D environments, allowing websites to become part of a shared -universe, where users can meet, chat, and acquire goods while collaborating to shape the world around them. In other words,URBii is an internet neighborhood where you and your friends come together to shop, play, and explore. Chat about the latest books at Amazon, or go window shopping at Nike.com. With URBii, your physical and virtual worlds finally come together — all within the comfort of your browser.
Why To Use It:
URBii brings a creative solution to the traditional challenge of monetizing 3D environments. E-commerce sites benefit from the platform’s interconnectivity, strategically placing their stores in the right “neighborhoods” and taking advantage of one another’s audiences.
The URBii business model is expected to create unique opportunities for advertising, brand immersion, and e-commerce, benefiting consumers and retailers alike.
How It Works:
When a user navigates to a URL, URBii re-maps the site into a virtual cityscape, complete with sidewalks, storefronts, and active shoppers. Anyone with a website can register for a property, or even a branded street, within the URBii world, where they are able to sell goods and provide services.
