About Web3D RoundUP
Presenters have one to five minutes at this twice-annual event to win over
the technically demanding audience who are all equipped with noisemakers to
interact with waves of approval or disapproval sounds.  To ensure the demos
don't run overtime, audience members shout out the remaining seconds ticking
down on the large onscreen clock.  The front rows are equipped with Ping
Pong ball launchers on the ready for demos that dare to not pay attention to
the clock.  Since 1996 this event has successfully played to
marketing-sizzle-intolerant packed houses at SIGGRAPH and ACM-sponsored
Web3D/VRML Symposium.
