museums, aquariums, web cams
virtual worlds, libraries,

2018 ART: EDU: Immersive theater in OpenSim: Scenes from Antony and Cleopatra


Immersive theater in OpenSim:  
Scenes from Antony and Cleopatra

Outworldz presents a beautifully choreographed scene from Shakespeare play, performed by bots (in OpenSim we call them Non-Player Characters--NPCs).  The lines are delivered in text.  A group studying the play could assign group members to deliver the lines aloud. 

SparkNotes 
Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. The play was performed first circa 1607 at the Blackfriars Theatre or the Globe Theatre by the King's Men. Its first appearance in print was in the Folio of 1623. -- Wikipedia

Go there 

  • HG address:
  • www.outworldz.com:9000 Egypt
  • Put the HG address in the Find bar of the World Map; click Find, TP
  • If this does not work, go to:
  • www.outworldz.com:9000 
  • Then use the World Map to find Egypt.

2018 PEOPLE: Social VR: The Next Big Thing that virtual worlders have enjoyed for years


Social VR:  The Next Big Thing 
that virtual worlders have enjoyed for years


Social VR.  Virtual reality used for social interaction.  A computer generated virtual world that people get together in.  They have avatars that give them a sense of presence and a sense of identity.  They talk with each other just as if they were in the same place.  They can walk around and talk about the virtual things they are looking at.  They can listen to music and have their avatars dance together.  They can watch movies together and talk about them.  They can attend classes, visit museums, or do all sorts of sexually weird things.   When will this technology come?  More than 10 years ago.

How to clear browser cache in Chrome 
without tossing your cookies.

Instructions on how to get Chrome to load a new copy of a web-page that has been changed.  
 Open Chrome settings
  • Chrome caches web pages to be able to load them fast.  
  • If a page on a web site changes, Chrome's version may not change immediately.
  • To make the page change immediately, you may have to clear browser cache.
  • But Chrome also caches things you don't want to lose.

  • A bit of digital smarts here.
