Studies Suggest Women Much More Likely to Get Motion Sickness from Using VR | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it
It's looking more and more likely that the world's top tech companies were so blinded to their gender bias that they spent billions of dollars on a technology that half the population probably can't even comfortably use.

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.

What Can Schools Learn from Minecraft? (Nine Ideas on Creativity and Learning)

What Can Schools Learn from Minecraft? (Nine Ideas on Creativity and Learning) | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it
I love the concept of Minecraft. I love the idea of a game built around world-building — where the game is less about programmed levels and more about an open, flexible design that allows the participants to create in an immersive learning. The following are some things Minecraft can teach us about the creative process:

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."

Telephone Museum, Dent - Second Life

Telephone Museum, Dent - Second Life | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

Of course, we all know something of the history of the telephone, with names like Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Grey (if not poor Antonio Meucci) being familiar to many of us, if only as a result of our school days. But what is it’s real story? How did the early telephones work? what have been the various eras of the ‘phone?

Denzel Coy brilliantly and charmingly answers these questions in Second Life through his Telephone Museum. Within it, visitors can explore the telephone’s entire history, from its beginnings with the unfortunate Meucci, the unlucky Grey and the fortunate Bell, through the first box systems, to candlesticks and on to the rotary era – all the way up to the modern cellphone.
