Virtual Worlds Roadmap
- Visions of what value virtual world technology will bring to specific applications
- Technical and business barriers to achieving that value
- Case studies on successes to date
- A roadmap and timeline for achieving mass adoption of specific applications.
Led by Victoria Coleman and Sibley Verbeck, representatives from IBM, Intel, Samsung, Stanford, Sun, Web3D Consortium, and other companies discussed the roadmap for the group and broke into working groups to focus on future applications for virtual worlds. The groups focused on applications for the health industry, entertainment, enterprise, and museums.
I joined what became the Mixed Reality Museum working group and am very excited about the prototype application we discussed. So excited actually I became a nerd on a mission and am finishing up on a mixed reality example for our group's next meeting.
For those interested in helping virtual world and 3D web applications grow, the Virtual Worlds Roadmap is a group I recommend participation and support for.
