Nearly a year ago, we showed you the excellent 3DHawaii site and their great use of 3D models with the Google Earth Plug-in.
They’re now in the process of launching a private label platform for anyone that could benefit from having a custom 3D solution on their site, such as hotels, travel agents, etc. The first site they’re launching via this program is the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and it’s very impressive. The 3D models, created through a partnership with CyberCity 3D, are stunningly good. All of the imagery is available inside of Google Earth, but it’s presented very nicely on the HHV site.
As a promotion to celebrate the launch of their 3D site, they’ve created a simple contest. If users go on the Hilton 3D site and find the five penguins located throughout the resort, they are entered to win a five-night stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. In case you are wondering “Why Penguins?”, Hilton has live penguins at their resort and its one of the things they are known for. The Penguins are very easy to find (it walks you though it), but it’s a great way to show off some of the amenities of the resort.
