For those looking for a new way to display their products on their website, now they can “Spin-it.”
Michael Oberdick of Bowling Green is operating a new business which provides a service of showcasing products in a new way for internet websites.
Developed for the eyeglass industry, Spin-it takes multiple pictures of the product from multiple angles and puts them together in series to give the illusion of the product spinning around to provide a 360 degree view.
Oberdick says the technology was developed by a couple of eye doctors looking for a new way to display the frames better.
Rather than video, which can sometimes provide issues in posting and using, he says this technology is user friendly for both those posting the images as well as those viewing them. There are two options a 16-frame and a 32-frame option. Once created, viewers can see the product spin entirely around or can click to stop it at any point in the cycle.
For the businesses who want to showcase their products using Spin-it, Oberdick says, “We hand it to them on a silver platter and they can get it on to their websites very easily.
Noting there are a “handful” of other companies in the United States offering similar services, however Oberdick says, “We have a higher clarity and more pictures to give a smoother spin.”
Though he did not develop the software or technology, what Spin-it does is offer the service of creating and providing the spinning images for other businesses to use. While most of his current clients are eye frame manufacturers, he is looking to expand the use to a variety of other products.
He says the spinning images are viewable on most all computers and mobile devices.
