2016 BIZ: HG: Virtual worlds, virtual reality, mixed reality--this means business.

Virtual worlds, virtual reality, mixed reality
--this means business.
Some things being developed in virtual worlds have potential use in "real world" businesses.   For these things to be useful to most businesses that work with the general public, virtual worlds need to be portable, much easier to use, and specialized for particular tasks.  Opensim software is well suited to that kind of future development.  This report notes some potential applications and offers preliminary suggestions about the specializations that might be needed. 

Examples of businesses that could use virtual worlds software

  • Selling fashion products.
  • Developing and customizing architecture.
  • Developing and customizing Interior design.
  • Designing and selling designs for stores and malls.
  • Designing and selling landscapes and gardens.
  • Models and prototypes: cars, trains, cruise ships, vehicle interiors

  • Virtual reality refers to 3D stereoscopic viewing of a "world."
  • A "world" is a computer representation of a 3D environment.
  • VR viewing of a "world" allows the viewer to move around in the representation.
  • The representation may be created from photograph or a graphic engine.
  • Photos would do for promoting things that are here and complete.
  • A graphic engine is needed for things in the future or imagined.
  • An image mixer could combine photo rendered and graphic rendered.

Things we need to use this potential

  • Viewer on the web (not necessarily with full function).
  • Software to bring photo rendered 3D into graphic rendered 3D.
  • Skilled graphic artists (from virtual worlds, of course).
