Survey Results: New Sansar Teaser Leaves Most Social VR Fans Unmoved

Survey Results: New Sansar Teaser Leaves Most Social VR Fans Unmoved | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it
With nearly 150 readers taking our poll on Linden Lab's new teaser for Sansar last week, here's the results -- nearly 1 in 4 (23% to be exact) are now more interested in trying out the social VR platform -- but that's strongly offset by the 16% who are now less interested. That's compared to the 55% whose interest wasn't changed in either direction.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, March 20, 12:53 AM
Quote "Apple as iterator, not innovator First off the starting blocks doesn't guarantee victory —just ask Eiger Labs or Creative Media how their corporate fortunes are doing in the wake of the iPod, how Microsoft's tablet initiative fared after a 2002 debut, or how Samsung's smart watches are selling."

8 Differences Between Second Life and OpenSim Grids

8 Differences Between Second Life and OpenSim Grids | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

Second Life is a 'closed', self-contained, commercial grid -- the über-grid which, whilst not connected to the OpenSim metaverse itself, seeded the concept and provided the technology to create it. When the Second Life client was made open-source in January 2007,1 the resulting OpenSimulator project produced, in time, the OpenSim metaverse -- a vast digital universe of hundreds (possibly thousands!) of grids or worlds, many of which are interconnected through an interworld teleport system called the hypergrid.
