Many People claim the first 3D Virtual Shopping Malls on the Internet etc etc. This maybe the earliest “working demo” Although there were no paypal buttons or credit card click here’s within browsers in 95 to allow an actual purchase of anything, The Mall did work as a 2D/3D hybrid Interface.

This was a full 3D interface that launched each “3D floor” of the Shopping Center. Each was a RT3D model and linked to a 2D HTML pages of photos/text descriptions of actual products. It was built in Virtus VR, exported as VRML 1,0 and placed on the WWW as a company demo.
