About The 3D Web Fest
This event experience will showcase websites that are the best mixture of music, art and technology, and exhibit what’s possible with the advent of 3D Web. The Web has transitioned from mostly text to an increasingly rich 2D image environment, and now the shift to 3D has arrived enabled by new Web standards and open source technologies.
