The days of going into a video rental store, browsing for a good VHS or DVD by reading the back of the box and then taking it home are clearly over. There won't even be any company-owned Blockbuster's to visit next year.
But the days of browsing for something good to watch certainly aren't over, and Netflix wants to make it easier for you to find movies or videos that you might like. The streaming video company announced today a new look for its TV interface that will make it simpler for subscribers to find and browse content or make "smarter choices," as Netflix VP of Product Innovation Chris Jaffe says.
The new, more visual interface displays more information about the recommended movies or TV shows. It features three rotating images from the movie or TV show, a shorter synopsis and some other highlights that might interest you, including whether your friends have watched and whether the title has won any awards.
In short, it's a lot more than just a movie poster.
"It's about Netflix getting out of the way and letting the user connect with the movie or TV show," Jaffe said. "We've been testing with 200,000 users and the result is that they watch more."

The search function has also been updated to be more eye-pleasing. So instead of text-based results, you'll now see a visual grid of tiles. The kids-experience section has also been spruced up, making it easier for children to find videos with their favorite characters.
The new interface is also speedier, especially on lower-powered devices such as Blu-ray players and the Roku box.
The new Netflix TV experience will be available on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, as well as on new Smart TVs, Blu-ray players and the Roku 3 box. It will begin rolling out today to some of those devices and be available globally in two weeks.
The new design won't, however, be available on the Xbox One or the Apple TV because those devices require different templates based on Microsoft and Apple's respective requirements.
But the new features are a notable part of the thriving company's strategy to get you to watch more and watch content you really like, no matter what device you are on.
"This is a TV-focused experience, though some of the high level themes could translate well to the apps and the websites," Jaffe said. "You shouldn't be surprised if we went in that direction."

The word "custom" is the most telling part of RichwoodArchery's Custom Shooting Systems (CSS) bows. You can customizenearly every feature of these bows. First, choose the length. I'lluse the Encore II as an example. It comes in axle-to-axle lengths of 33,35 and 37 inches. The bow assemblers at CSS use different length limbswith the same riser to achieve this range. The most popular size is 35inches, while the 37-inch model is the most stable and the 33 is themost portable.
Brace height also changes slightly with axle-to-axle length. The 33-inch bow has the lowest brace height (under 7.5 inches) and the 37-inch model has the highest brace

There are many who are interested in build their own miniature cars with the help of 3D modeling software. Building such a car is one of the best ways to test your designing skills. There are many different software used for building a virtual car. A software like 'Alias AutoStudio' allows users to design automobiles. Open source or free software can also be employed for designing. Before you start with the actual process of designing, you should do a thorough research on the car you wish to design. There are many groups and forums on the Internet that might help you to understand how to build a virtual 3D car. Such online groups offer you the platform to interact with designers across the globe.
Building a Virtual Car
Professional designers and engineers make use of software programs to improve the design of cars; some of us indulge into designing just for fun. Before you start with the actual process of building a virtual 3D car, prepare hard copies of the design. You may come up with some interesting ideas about car-designing by holding brainstorming sessions with fellow designers. Ideas for improving the design of grills, tires, windshields and other parts of the car can be obtained from such sessions.
Steps in Building a Virtual Car
A step-by-step procedure for designing a virtual car with a computer-aided design CAD software is presented below.For designing a virtual car, you'll first need an image or a rough sketch to work on. Once you create the hard copies, the CAD software comes into play. A CAD software allows you to edit the design and customize it with the help of different features. In the process of editing, the first step is to create an outline of the car. The outline can be traced with the help of 'line' tool. In the next step, the 'extrusion' tool is used to convert the 2-dimensional image into a 3-dimensional one. The 'drawing' tool, meant for drawing different shapes, should be used to create a cylindrical shape - tire of the car. Four cylindrical shapes would be required to create 4 tires of your virtual car. You will have to adjust the size of these cylindrical shapes by means of the 'sizing' tool. The 'cut' tool allows you to trace the details such as windows, doors, windshield, etc. Once you trace the details, paint them with the 'color' tool.
A modeling software like Adobe Photoshop is used for adding different 'effects' to a design. However, you can also 'run' your virtual cars with the help of computerized simulations. It is also possible to test the car you have designed for aerodynamics; knowledge of an advanced level is needed to use such kind of software. You can make a car lighter and stronger by making necessary changes to its design (prototype).
How to Build a Virtual 3D Car Online
Building a car online involves the activity of customizing it with the help of options offered by the manufacturer of the car; a car is customized with tools offered by the manufacturer at his website. First, select the model of the car you want to customize. Use the tools that are offered on the website. Specify the color of the car, size of engine and other things which you need to upgrade. By following this procedure you can build a nice, customized car.
Nowadays, 3D modeling software are commonly used for the activity of designing a virtual car. Engineers and designers make use of a myriad of software to improve the design of cars. Choose a software that you find easy to work with and get going with the process of designing.
