Opensim Virtual – Community – Google+

Opensim Virtual – Community – Google+ | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it

Maria Korolov (Hypergrid Business) reported, "Opensim Virtual has rapidly become the go-to place for discussions about OpenSim, with 1000 members at last count (Dec 2014). Lots of discussions going on here. People post links to useful articles, share content, post event announcements and special offers, and ask for advice. It’s a friendly, open and welcoming community."

Talla Adam's insight:

Apart from curating this Scoop.IT! news site I also moderate the successful Opensim Virtual community at Google plus in support of, and to promote, a free and open Metaverse of connected Hypergated worlds.

 

Everyone is welcome to visit and find out more about the free Metaverse.

What are the best grids?

What are the best grids? | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it

Everybody is looking for something different. Some people want a big community, others want content protection, others want freedom to travel the hypergrid and save backups of their inventories, and still others want to keep things private just for themselves and their friends, students, or employees...

"Shortly after the acquisition of Oculus was announced, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg made a spot-on statement in April 2014 to Wired: When you put on the headset and you try it out, you really do feel like you’re there within seconds. Then you realize that the system that’s delivering this experience is using commodity hardware with cellphone screens, and can be manufactured for a low number of hundreds of dollars, and this can be in a lot of people’s hands..."

Kitely merchants continue switch to exports | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it

Given the choice between selling to Kitely‘s 1,003 local active users or to the 14,075 on the hypergrid, it makes sense that more and more Kitely Market merchants have gone the hypergrid route. In fact, exportables have long been growing at a faster rate than non-exportables for the past eight months and actually surpassed non-exportables for the first time last month...

The Talos Principle Prompts Thinking Beyond Virtual World

The Talos Principle Prompts Thinking Beyond Virtual World | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it
The Talos Principle, a new video game, includes a focus on questions about religion and consciousness.
Talla Adam's insight:

The Talos Principle’s heritage can be traced in part to the science fiction of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner and the writings of Philip K. Dick (cited as an influence by one of the game’s two writers). Like those works, this game is deeply interested in the nature of artificial intelligence and the potential of machines to reason. (In Greek mythology, Talos was a giant made of bronze.)

The Smuggler's home Souleymane.Senghor climbs the final steps and walks onto his 'front porch". The walk was a long one, or it was for little Fukujuso. About halfway, he took her on his back, like a piggyback ride. The walk through the caves was interesting. Fukujuso held tightly onto him. The many, many steps around to his place made for a long walk, but hed long ago grown used to it. He explained during the walk that he had lived here almost three years now and he loved it because of its remoteness...

New grid uses Bitcoin for payments, gambling

New grid uses Bitcoin for payments, gambling | Virtual Worlds, Virtual Reality & Role Play | Scoop.it

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...
