Introducing Opensimulator and the 3D Web
OpenSimulator is an open source multi-platform, multi-user 3D application server. It allows you to create a virtual world, from a small one on your laptop, to a massive multi-user grid running in the cloud. Just as links allow you to go from one website to another, a facility called the hypergrid allows you to travel from one opensimulator virtual world to another. Virtual worlds on the hypergrid are used in a variety of ways. Training exercises and simulations such as Emergency Response and Military Simulations, have found Opensim as a useful cost-effective tool. Schools and universities find Opensim to be a good way to deliver immersive distance learning, and several universities have full virtual campuses. Conferences and business meetings also benefit from immersive 3D collaboration. Filmmakers use Opensim to create cost effective real time 3D animation, known as Machinima. And, of course, people have fun with virtual gaming, art galleries, performances and social action of all kinds.
Virtual Reality, 3D Interaction and gamification, 3D printing are getting ready to explode into the next big thing (once the hype cycle dies down). Will your business be ready to take advantage of it? We can help!
