Staying Fit on the Treadmill at Paradise Delight II (R2V2R Video #01)

Staying Fit on the Treadmill at Paradise Delight II (R2V2R Video #01) | Virtual SarVana | Scoop.it
Staying Fit on the Treadmill at Paradise Delight II (R2V2R Video #01) is our first "Real 2 Virtual 2 Real (R2V2R)" Exercise Companion Video.
CherryNetwork's insight:
Woot, Woot!!! So excited about releasing one of my Real 2 Virtual 2 Real Videos, "Staying Fit on the Treadmill at Paradise Delight II". It may be just under seven (7) minutes but it required a lot of real life and virtual-based minutes to produce it. In the video, my Kitely-based avatar aka "Sally Cherry" is working out at the virtual-based Paradise Spa that I created and accessorized along with the beachfront retreat and campgrounds, "Paradise Delight II". Oh, the avatar is watching a real life YouTube running video which shows how easy videos can be used within a virtual-based environments. The video is a by-product of the ongoing virtual-based experience inspired by my vision of "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real". I interpret my vision as "the bi-directional integration of real life and 3D immersive virtual worlds to enhance information sharing; training and collaborative networking". My 3D immersive virtual world exploration; learning and skills-building started in 2008 within the 2D virtual world community, Metaplace. Over the years, it has evolved into a diverse network of 3D immersive virtual world projects pertaining to HIV/AIDS awareness; STI laboratory training; nonprofits; medical laboratory science careers; networking; public health; and other topics of interest. The "Staying Fit on the Treadmill at Paradise Delight II" video is just one of the numerous videos recorded during my virtual-based explorations. As with all of the other videos, it was created and produced by yours truly, Sally S. Cherry with the assistance of an 3D virtual-based avatar and various video recording software. You are invited to watch the video, Like it (if you desire to do so) and/or leave your comments. Stay tuned for more videos!

Experiencing 3D Immersive Virtual Worlds: Opensimulator-generated | Facebook

Vision: "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real (R2V2R)"
http://cherrynetwork.weebly.com/avatar-networking.html

Focus: Integration of 3D Immersive Virtual Worlds within real life projects and activities pertaining to laboratory training; medical laboratory career promotion; public health awareness; HIV/AIDS awareness; professional networking; and social media marketing. http://cherrynetwork.weebly.com/virtual-worlds.html

Since 2008, I have been exploring, building, sharing information and networking in several 2D/3D virtual worlds with the assistance of various computer-generated avatars. Although I started within a 2D virtual world known as Metaplace, I migrated to the 3D virtual world of Second Life with a small band of colleagues in 2010. After the relocation and a feasibility study, the first phase of Ms. BugLady's Training Laboratory and Lab Career Center was designed and built with the help of my Second Life avatar, SarVana Haalan. As the OpenSimulator software became more stable, I relocated the “Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Recruitment Project" to various Opensimulator grids... JokaydiaGRID (education and the arts) and Kitely (virtual worlds on demand). 

This album will feature various virtual spaces and projects that I have designed, developed and built as well as events that I have attended within my 3D virtual world communities. Since this virtual-based venture has been self-funded since the very beginning, additional funding and/or sponsors are being sought to sustain the 3D immersive virtual laboratory and public health awareness projects. You are invited to visit my 3D virtual community and explore it as another platform for sharing information; training, educational projects; entertainment venues; role playing; book signings; and community-building activities... https://www.kitely.com/virtual-world/Sally-Cherry/CHARE-Village

2016 WRITE: Writers of the Hypergrid. Creative Collaboration.

2016 WRITE:  Writers of the Hypergrid.  Creative Collaboration. | Virtual SarVana | Scoop.it

People with common interests can work together over the internet in virtual worlds. With a little imagination, it is like a face-to-face meeting. And writers have more than a little imagination. I am proposing a creative collaboration writers group on the Hypergrid. The initial activity of this group might be a regular meeting in which we do cold reads of dialogs written by members of the writers community.

CherryNetwork's insight:

Excellent vision... a creative collaboration writers group on the Hypergrid!

2017 HELP:  You don't need a graphics card to use virtual worlds--Integrated graphics works. | Virtual SarVana | Scoop.it
Comparing Nvidea and Intel integrated graphics on the same laptop, I find that the integrated graphics is quite adequate for general use. We of the metaverse should not tell people that they need a graphics card for our worlds. We should tell them: If you have a fairly new laptop with enough memory, install a viewer and see if it does the job for you. Don't go after the mass market with upscale prices.

A hypertext presentation setup is displayed in my nonprofit web-world. It is a web-walk, a little like power-point, but instead of bullet points, I use web-pages arranged as a walkway. As a presentation, I would walk along and offer integrating comments about each panel. People can click on a panel and read the detail. I don't have to talk much and that leaves more time for questions.
