Step into a virtual world

April 12, 2008

Wow! Good progress is being made towards allowing humans to immerse themselves in virtual worlds. This video shows a new camera which allows you to translate body movements into Second Life.

It may look a little basic at the moment but once the worlds get more ‘real’ there is real potential for many industries (including travel) to really go to town on providing the next best thing to their ‘real’ products online.

    Hope all is well. I'm Alisha from Wowzio, and I'm excited to tell you about our new widget platform that helps bloggers increase readership and create more engaged users.
    Our widgets are absolutely free for personal use (and we don't insert ads on your blog either).
    We have released a few widgets recently that I think you'll find useful so I wanted to reach out to you to ask for your feedback (feel free to also install any widgets on your blog, if you feel they are a fit for you).

    Our Photo Widget for example, automatically creates a slideshow for you from all the photos you post on your blog.
    Photos are a great way to get new (and regular) readers to dive deeper into your blog and read more of your content.
    We also have other widgets which should help increase traffic to your blog(Live Activity & Feed Widget).
    You can check out widgets customized for your blog here:

    I’m sorry for leaving this message via a comment, it’s not at all our intent to spam you ( which is why i’m leaving this comment on an older post ).
    We’d love to hear your feedback about our widgets, and feel free to remove this comment! 🙂

    The computer accesses a computer-simulated world and presents perceptual stimuli to the user,who in turn can manipulate elements of the modeled world and thus experiences telepresence to a certain degree.Such modeled worlds may appear similar to the real world or instead depict fantasy worlds.The model world may simulate rules based on the real world or some hybrid fantasy world.Virtual worlds are well-known as being fantasy spaces sealed off from the real world,but more careful analysis reveals that the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds is quite porous.
