Now I want to create worlds

Creating a 3D Web world in VR and sharing it with all of my students was so invigorating that now I want to create more virtual worlds. And that is what I am going to do.

Today I took a tape measure and measured off a section of our lab where there isn’t a lot of foot traffic. I am going to make that part of our lab my experimental “Metaroom”.

I am now building computer graphics versions of the tables and walls in that space, so that whatever I see when I walk around in VR, I will also be able to touch with my actual hands. Also, that way I won’t bump into the furniture! :-) Once that’s taken care of I can add whatever I want.

I plan to create floating artworks and creatures that respond to my presence. I also plan to make the world shareable so I can invite my friends to come and play.

After all, this is a Metaroom!

    That sounds very interesting to try! I find it quite useful in many ways to include just my work desk in the virtual environment. Reproducing and extending the whole environment adds lots of possibilities…
