3D urban model on the iPad

This is the first example of a 3D urban model on the new Apple device (which I saw up close for the first time last week). The video below looks very impressive indeed and is courtesy of Mobile 3D City using datasets by a company called Blom.

I have blogged about Mobile 3D City and their excellent iPhone Paris virtual city application before (check the post from last summer here) and the video above highlights in great detail the potential of using the iPad over the iPhone for 3D urban environment visualization. It'll be interesting to see Google catch up with this (their new iPad Google Earth app does not support 3D yet) and push the boundaries of this further as the Mobile 3D City app is single-city only at the moment.
