It is my hope to see a convergence/collaboration between the Cobalt and Opensim projects. The ability for both to leverage XMPP & Jabber is a great start. But in the end being able to share spaces as well. I have submitted a request for feedback to the Cobalt developers to start the discussion regarding the ability for Cobalt to load Opensim OAR archives – much like Cobalt loads C3D templates. I will keep the group posted on discussions!Being able to load Opensim OAR archives much like Cobalt parses & loads C3D files is the short term goal:
Three things I have been pretty consistent with here on this blog over the past 5 years: * Social Media * Mobile Media & 3D virtual Environments.Via the Times Online: The Googlephone: Google gears up for attack on mobile-phone market
The Googlephone promises to be one of the most advanced smartphones, with a large touchscreen display and a processor almost twice as fast as the one powering Apple’s iPhone 3GS. It will probably be the first phone to run a new version of Google’s Android software, codenamed Flan, offering high-speed 3-D gaming said to be as good as that of many handheld consoles.
I discussed Edusim and immersive education with the Rez Ed folks – along with Linden Labs and Rezzable
9:14 – 10:14 In Dialogue discussing Second Life, Heritage Key and Edusim
10:15 – 13:27 Terrence Cummings, of Linden Lab, discusses Second Life enterprise and its’ role within education
13:28 – 16:21 Jon Himoff, CEO of Rezzable, speaks about Heritage Key as an educational tool
16:22 – 22:14 Rich White, of the Greenbush Educational Center in SE Kansas, talks about Edusim
After a twitter discussion with Justin Clark-Casey (more on his blog here) it seems a osSetDynamicSculptieURL() function for Opensim is feasible … A step closer to bring something like this (see below) to Opensim for kids !
After years of tweeting, blog posting, and pontificating about the “someday GPhone” (GPhone Posts Android Posts) … I finally broke down and traded in the Blackberry for the new Droid. Results are so far very impressive – and 3G is amazing.Considering I still remember what the web was like with a 14 K modem and no GUI (Mosaic not to mention Netscape) back in 1993-94 you can imagine how amazed I was to watch Star Trek on the new Droid over the Verison 3G network … The Mobile and Immersive webs continue to amaze me (High order bits – July 2007)
I have Written and worked with this technology for several years now – here are videos defining the differences.
