Immersive 3D Launches New Interactive Learning System and Names Joseph Campanella as President

Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Immersive 3D (i3D), a Baltimore-based education technology firm specializing in 3D virtual learning systems and platforms for K-12 education, named local business executive Joe Campanella as its company President. The announcement comes just as i3D is set to debut its Virtual Learning System Cyber STEM Academy, at the STEM Trek Conference on June 15 at Towson University.

Im honored to be at the forefront of the technology that merges the energy and graphics of 3D gaming with the promise of STEM-based learning curricula, said Campanella, a Wharton School graduate and Baltimore businessman.

Campanella was the founder and CEO of Campanella Realty and Consulting, and is now bringing his extensive experience in business development, operations and management to i3D. Campanella has been active in the Baltimore business community for over three decades, including serving as an investor in the Ginos Burgers and Chicken franchise that his father and former Baltimore Colt, Joe Campanella, helped found in 1957.

I3ds new interactive learning system, Cyber STEM Academy, offers a plug-and-play platform for integrating STEM lessons and education games with existing curricula in a 3D multi-user environment. Students can create an avatar to explore the virtual school, discover experiential learning using the laboratories, experiment with physics in the gymnasium, play virtual instruments in the auditorium – all while being associated with the lessons in the classrooms. The student-friendly, multi-user environment also includes learning pods for additional studies in subjects such as nutrition, health, ethics, college planning and more. Additionally, plasticity puzzles, brain-training and memory exercises are presented to the student throughout the STEM learning experience.

Weve always known that kids can learn from playing video games and now were creating the platform for it to happen, said Frank Vivirito, i3D founder and CEO.

Vivirito, a veteran Hunt Valley, Md. computer game professional, founded i3D after he was asked to create a prototype for local school districts and immediately saw a need and the promise of using video-game style 3D graphics to foster K-12 STEM education.

I3D, a supporting sponsor of the Baltimore County STEM Alliance, will debut Cyber STEM Academy at STEM Trek Conference on June 15th . This conference will provide an opportunity to share information about STEM initiatives in Baltimore County and the potential for collaborations and partnerships. Participants will include one representative from each Baltimore County Public School as well as other area STEM educators and professionals. The conference will feature a panel discussion, forum sessions, poster sessions and exhibitions from supporters and developers of STEM programs.

Stickman Tennis

Stickman TennisLike the other Stickman games, Stickman Tennis by Robert Szeleney, gives you the same simple, black stickman animation – only this time you’re playing tennis!  For a virtual game, this is about as realistic as it gets!  Play topspins, cross, longline, inside-out and more on 10 courts in 64 tournaments!  There’s an in-app purchase available for $ 0.99 that gives you a pack of five replays.

 

Stickman TennisStickman Tennis can be played through a quick game or a complete tour season.  With both gaming options, you’re given multiple choices on how you’d like to play your game.  You can choose between an Arcade – automatic running mode or a Pro – manual running mode.  You can also choose if you want to play an easy game (opponents won’t hurt you), medium game (opponents are good) or a hard game (opponents at their best).  And lastly, you can choose if you want to play three short sets that start at 4:4, three full sets or one short last set that also starts at 4:4.

 

Stickman Tennis’ controls couldn’t be simpler!  If you’re playing in the Arcade mode, your players will run automatically, so you’ll use the joystick for shot direction.  If you’re playing in Pro mode, you’ll use it to run, as well as shot direction.  To hit the ball, tap and hold the arrow-icons for the move you want to make.  There are three: lob, slice and topspin.  Hold them longer for harder shots.  Your timing does matter, so release the button at the right moment.  Arcade is much easier than Pro.  You don’t have to focus on running the perfect distance.  I really love the different court and tournament options!  It’s nice to switch it up!  Stickman Tennis is another great game by Robert Szeleney that features realistic simplicity!

 

iTunes lists Stickman Tennis’ features as such:

  • Play a quick game or complete tour season
  • Simple yet powerful touch controls with timing control
  • Automatic running or manual running
  • Play top spins, slices and lobs, cross, long line, inside-out, etc.

Microsoft Shows Off Next-Gen Forza

Microsoft showcased a Forza Motorsport 5 trailer today at its E3 press conference. The game has been confirmed for Xbox One.

In a truly next-gen turn, Forza 5 will use a cloud-sourced technology called “drivatar,” by which the game’s AI can learn to drive like real people from player data. Though it’s not completely clear how this technology will work, it raises interesting prospects for the potential of next-gen gaming.

Check out the Forza 5 trailer and some high-res screenshots in the gallery below.
