 •   For this , we use virtual characters with authentic emotions, generating a high
     level of self-motivation which is transferred into sustainable communications
     and learning successes.

 •   A crucial part of the production: our character middle-ware phenomeTM
     generates character behavior on-demand and in real-time.

       •Features of phenomeTM:
            •   Large parts of pre-production are redundant (motion capture and key frame
                animations)
            •   Time and cost savings of over 40 per cent
            •   interactive story-telling is created in the gameplay
            •   Used in film-making, too! The phenomeTM 3D real-time technology has
                already been used for "virtual movie-making" of major hollywood film
                productions ( “Alice in wonderland").
