Sacha has been working on updates to the k-grid, the OpenSim set of sims he is building and testing. Today we tried the hypergrid extension to the opensim software that allows traveling between opensim locations creating the beginnings of “a web of virtual worlds”. “Hypergrid” makes it sound like we have to use something dangerous like this (image, below)
I reference the Large Hadron Collider because it makes you think of the potential for interspace problems, like forming a black hole. However, look at the above photo of us in Francogrid, and it appears something weird happened.
I look a little like Sacha since I am borrowing his shape and hair, but he changed into a very weird looking avatar. Plus it was a tad greyed-out, so I don’t know if our photons were slighly messed up. Look at it this way, we are taking risks for the future of our worlds.
Here we are back in SL and it looks like we were able to get our regular appearance back. The location of this image is Alton Icarus (the sim that was used for Kids5b but is now being transformed into the Kids Information Center), where we were looking at the construction progress in the Milk N Kookies (MnK) Teaching Studio, part of a whole building dedicated to MnK, Kid’s Radio, and sharing knowledge of how to produce content like MnK for SL. This is going to be way cool.
