Subject: 3D Virtual World construct
Inspired by space station architecture, the Noospheric Research Group (NRG) was an early virtual design experiment constructed inside the SecondLife virtual world in 2006. The structure includes multiple levels, landing pads, docking ports,a teleportation device, a rotating spherical star map, and a very high altitude observation deck.
I designed, modeled, constructed, and programmed every aspect of this structure.
The NRG structure hosted a potential virtual group meeting space for a Noospheric Research Group community. After 2006, however, SecondLife hype subsided.
Perhaps now that the Virtual Reality renaissance is actually here to stay, something like the NRG structure will emerge again?
