Metaverse musings

July 5, 2007

There is a lot of hype and often rubbish currently being written about virtual worlds but in the July issue of MIT’s Technology Review Wade Roush’s Second Earth comprehensively describes the state of research into the 3D web.

Also recently released is the Metaverse Roadmap (available as PDF document) a 28 page report which considers the implications in detail of possible metaverse scenarios, from augmented reality to mirror worlds.

Both had me musing over possible directions this technology could take over the next 10-20 years and it was a relief to read something of substance on the topic.
