Experimental Game Turns Players into Poets and Writers

Experimental Game Turns Players into Poets and Writers | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
What do British Romantic Era poets and video games have in common? The answer is Elegy for a Dead World, an unlikely game that leaves the players with “no game to play,” but to explore three long-dead civilizations, observe, and make notes... or stories — or poems — or songs.

Arduino Glass: Open Source AR Headset

Arduino Glass: Open Source AR Headset | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Have you ever considered getting an augmented reality headset? Were you also wowed at the possibility of augmented reality and looked at the price tag with a broken heart?Yes, me too!But that didn't stop me there. I built up my courage and instead, decided to build my own AR headset.I really felt that augmented reality market is niche and it needs an open market. Makers and developers are the market enablers. But the problem is that their developer kits are expensive and costs greater than $1000. So a normal maker or developer cannot afford it. So I am building this open source platform for augmented reality on both software and hardware so makers and developers can innovate together on it.

Low tech entry path for starting in Hypergrids

Low tech entry path for starting in Hypergrids | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Virtual worlds use to be for geeks. Not any more. Oh, there is lots to learn. But you only need to learn what you want to use now. Later, you will find other things you want to learn. You can learn them then. This entry path just teaches the skills you need to attend music shows, performances, meetings, classes, and chats. And it starts on the web, where you are already at home.
