Interactive 3D landing pages for your online content.

Bjorn's Doorways is a web app for viewing and interacting with 3D art - art created with assorted Bjorn's Playground apps and add-ons.

The main purpose of Doorways is to act as a portal (landing page) for online content (e.g. presentations / Google Slide decks).

The user can zoom in, rotate and interact with your 3D art before clicking the optional link that will take him or her to the final destination (e.g. your slideshow).

Hint: in the sample below, you can zoom the camera with SHIFT+mousewheel.
