I have been very busy the past few months due my recent relocation back to Florida and working in a very cool project.
Last weekend I just released a cool interactive tool for one of my clients. This tool would allow customers upload pictures of theirs on vehicle and visualize new rims on it. From there they can save and share on Facebook or Twitter, and click the “buy now” button to see more specific details about the wheel and finalize the checkout process.
This project took us 6 months from planning, project, hire the resources and put everything together. We used Adobe ColdFusion 8, Flash 10 and Microsoft SQL Server 2010. The Flash app “talks” to the database using ColdFusion components. The database driven application features the drop down box for the vehicle selection, then it applies a formula to only bring the rims that fits the selected vehicle year, make and model.
We are now planning the next version of the visualizer that will have many improvements but for sure will keep the CF/SQL Server as back end. Perhaps a Jquery version? 😀
Take a look at the Rims Visualizer application. There are already many cool vehicles uploaded like this 2010 Cadilac Escalade. Comments and feedback are very welcome.
