Phig takes us on a tour of CyberWorld, a museum of 3-D exhibits. The "exhibits" (i.e., earlier 3-D productions) include the bar sequence from Antz (1998); the "Homer(3)" segment of _"Simpsons, The" (1989)_, and the shorts Monkey Brain Sushi, Flipbook, Out of the Box, Liberation (a Pet Shop Boys music video), Krakken, and Joe Fly and Sanchez.

Eye candy, eye candy and more eye candy, nothing else.
Although I was extremely impressed with the incredible 3D effects in this movie. It seemed sort of forced. I suppose the technology is so new that the creators just wanted to see exactly what they can do. So they took a bunch of cool looking CGI sequences and made it true 3D, instead of just computer 3D. Some of these sequences I'm sure you'll recognize, Antz and a scene from The Simpsons (guess which one) are the two most likely.
The downside to Cyberworld is that it lacks anything but eye candy. There was an attempt at throwing some life into it with a stupid plot about our "cyber-host" fighting off the clumsy "code bugs" who are worse than Jar-Jar Binks, so watch out. They could have at least attempted to put in a plot that might interest someone over the age of 3, but they didn't. It's all cheeseball, poorly done G-Rated c**p. At least Disney makes it funny and entertaining, Cyberworld just makes it stupid.
But I doubt most people are going to spend $10 to see Cyberworld for it's fantastic plot. We all know that they just want to see cutting edge 3D effects that will blow them away, and there's plenty of that. That's why I saw it, and it was definitely incredible. So now that they know what they can do, maybe they can do something interesting.
