Once in a while, a web site comes along that is so far out in front of existing technology, that people aren’t sure what to make of it. Well there is a truly unique 3D web site designed by GE explaining what a smart grid is all about. A smart grid, according to Wikipedia, delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers using digital technology to save energy, reduce cost and increase reliability. Such a modernized electricity network is being promoted by many governments as a way of addressing energy independence or global warming issues. The web site that I mentioned is an excellent example of Flash animation and GE has taken it a step further by using Augmented Reality (AR). If you don’t know what AR is, go to the GE web site. You’ll learn about 3D web site presentation and the smart grid too.
