 3-D Dinosaur Adventure and 3-D Body Adventure
 LAS VEGAS, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Knowledge Adventure Inc., a leading developer of multimedia educational software products, today unveiled its 3-D software technology at COMDEX, the world's largest computer trade show. 3-D Dinosaur Adventure and 3-D Body Adventure are the company's first products to feature this groundbreaking technology on personal computers.
 The company's 3-D software technology creates true stereo three- dimensional still images and movies using a standard PC equipped with a VGA monitor and a CD-ROM or hard drive.

It enables us to create products that challenge, inform, as well as entertain our customers. The development of our 3-D software technology gives us tremendous opportunities for integrating truly real images and movies in our future products. And, then, combine this 3-D technology along with our innovative Zoomscape, Virtual Object Control and Express Movie Player technologies and the possibilities are endless for creating entertainin?d educational software."

Customers can view the brain and the heart as well as the skeletal structure in 3-D or zoom in on an object such as the heart, and rotate it through the use of the Virtual Object Control technology. 3-D Dinosaur Adventure will be available for $79.95 in CD-ROM and for $59.95 in diskette format. 3-D Body Adventure will be available for $79.95 in CD-ROM and for $49.95 in diskette format.
