In conjunction with her time at the UWA in the physical world, FreeWee has been granted the use of a LEA Artist in Residence region, where she has established FreeWee’s Laboratory v.8.0: Music, Myth, Magic, Light, Shadows, Physics, a unique combination of workshop, study space, laboratory and gallery focused on helping her demonstrate the potential of virtual worlds to students at the UWA.
The role of gaming in education is a continuing debate and any parent who spends evening and weekends trying to prise their children away from the blocky world of Minecraft and into a real one involving mealtimes, families and fresh air are looking for some guidance to tell them to crank down or power up on the whole Minecraft ‘thing’.
Eddi Haskell is all over the premiere of The Hall of the Centaurs, which as he puts it, is by Havit Neox, "one of Second Life's most famous architects, [who] builds fanciful structures and entire cities that employ a wide range of architectural effects. His latest creation, In The Hall of the Centaurs at Second Life's famous Verdigris City, is another jewel in his crown... Make sure to walk and teleport to all levels to see hidden rooms which such as one with a rotating Unisphere that appears to have swarms of bees rising at its base."
When it comes to virtual reality, there are two fronts, two main technical directions that the technology is evolving in that everyone is talking about. But there’s also a third front, that hasn’t been getting as much attention, but which has the potential of being truly revolutionizing.
Kitely Market was designed from the beginning to be a multi-platform marketplace. To that end, a year ago we announced our content liberation front initiative for helping Second Life content creators prepare their content for sale to buyers outside of Second Life. At that time Kitely Market only worked inside the Kitely grid, but a few months later we expanded its scope significantly by allowing sales to avatars on any Hypergrid-enabled OpenSim grid. Today we’re announcing our intention to expand the scope of Kitely Market even further: Kitely Market will support delivery to the next-generation virtual worlds platform High Fidelity, once that system becomes mature enough to accept deliveries.
Small Worlds by Cica Ghost, a delightful collection of miniatures she has created, based in part on some of her recent sim-wide installations. Framed in cases on small pedestals, each of the small worlds — Little Lake, House on the Hill, Little Village, and then one for each of the four seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn — depicts in exquisite detail a little scene: curious landscapes, some with Dr. Suess-like houses and some without, and with animated elements ranging from balloons to cats to snow to ducks in water.
In the past, several grid owners have discussed using Bitcoin, the peer-to-peer cryptocurrency, for in-world payments but, until now, no grid has done so — Bitcoins are typically too volatile to be used within a grid. Instead, most grids that accept Bitcoins for payments use them as an alternative to PayPal or other payment options for currency purchases.
This is a super useful-looking and crazily exhaustive tutorial for streaming/recording Second Life in Steam from Ai Austin. The record function should be great for recording Let's Play-style Second Life videos (and I'd love to see more of those, as long as they're not yet more lame troll vids), and the stream feature lets you squirt your Second Life experience to another display
The plot of Project Syria is unfolding around bombing in the war struck modern day Aleppo. The first part of the narrative puts the viewer in the street in Aleppo where they see a girl singing when a mortar shell hits.
When I opened my eyes I suddenly found myself in an art gallery that had been transformed into a full-blown party with thumping music, bright red helium balloons pulling at the furniture, and a menagerie of life forms, humanoid and fantastical, chatting and flitting about. This guest article comes from Chris Madsen who has been… Read the full article …
Unfortunately no cameras or phones were allowed inside the press’ special hands-on meeting with Microsoft HoloLens after the device’s announcement on Wednesday, so we can’t show you a single picture of the only verifiably working model of the new augmented reality headset.
