  5. 5. 1) What is Jibe?● Jibe is a multiuser 3d virtual world platform created by ReactionGrid and accessible via a web browser or standalone client.● Jibe allows you to design and manage your own virtual world which can either be hosted by ReactionGrid or fully installed on your own servers.● With a single click install and no browser restart, users can instantly be in your fully customized multiuser 3d virtual world.
  6. 6. 2) Jibe Architecture ● The Jibe platform is an extensible architecture that uses a middleware abstraction layer to communicate with multiple backend systems (currently SmartFox & Photon) and frontends (currently Unity3D). ● Current deployments of Jibe worlds utilize the Unity3D web plugin, with iOS and Android support under development.
  7. 7. 3) The Unity3D Editor● Using the Unity3D Editor to build your Jibe world gives you access to a professional development environment with professional quality graphics, physics and sound.● You can create 3d assets within the Editor or import assets created with any industry standard 3d modeling program (Maya, Blender, Lightwave, Google Sketchup, 3D Studio Max, Autodesk, & more).● The Unity3D Editor also supports scripting in C#, Javascript and Boo, allowing you to design highly interactive environments and objects.
