The Jibe Platform

Jibe is a multiuser 3d simulation and virtual world platform created by ReactionGrid. If you're a developer, you can use the Jibe Developer Kit to create, publish and manage your own fully customized virtual world which can be embedded in any web page or accessed from mobile devices. Your Jibe world can either be hosted by ReactionGrid or fully installed on your own servers.

The Jibe platform is an extensible architecture that uses a middleware abstraction layer to communicate with a user database, multiple backend systems (currently SmartFox) and frontends (currently Unity3D). Current deployments of Jibe worlds utilize the Unity3D web plugin, with Android and iOS support under development.

Jibe lets you use the industry standard Unity3D Editor to design your 3D world, giving you access to an industry standard development environment with professional quality graphics, physics and sound.

You can create 3d assets within the Editor or import assets created with any industry standard 3d modeling program (Maya, Blender, Lightwave, Google Sketchup, 3D Studio Max, Autodesk, & more). The Unity3D Editor also supports scripting in C#, Javascript and Boo, allowing you to design highly interactive environments and objects.

One reason why Jibe is such a powerful 3d simulation and virtual world platform is because the majority of the source code of Jibe is viewable and modifiable by our customers. This gives developers using Jibe the ability to fully customize their projects. For more details, please see our Jibe License.

Additional features of Jibe include:

  • Customizable 3D Avatars
  • Private/Public Text Chat
  • Support for High User Concurrency
  • Vivox Voice Integration
  • Hooks for Augmented Reality Apps
  • Support for SCADA and Robotics
  • LMS/CMS/Facebook Integration
  • Detailed Logging and User Tracking
