***2016 TECH: OSHG: Early demo meeting in Cybalounge. Not your father's virtual world

Early demo meeting in Cybalounge.  
Not your father's virtual world
Updated 2/4/2017
Valibrarian Gregg and a few others attended a presentation by Edward Tarber in Cybalounge, a limited virtual world available in a browser.   We had a total of 5 concurrent.  Edward streamed a presentation in voice.  As a demo, it worked quite well.  Edward expects to have an improved version of the virtual world available in January.
Meeting in Cybalounge for presentation 
by Edward Tarber
  • Presentation was in voice via streaming.
  • It took about 40 seconds to enter as guest (no registration, no password).
  • This method invites impulse entry
  • We listened to the voice presentation and saw slides.
  • We could type questions or comments.
  • With a few improvements, this system would be adequate for presentations.
  • (More after the break, scroll down!)

Metaverse events, current and upcoming


Possible improvements for Cybalounge

  • Increase speed of avatar travel
  • Shift key improves speed, but is needed all time
  • Add double-click TP 
  • Make zoom easier to use
  • Allow camming around
  • Provide scripted seats with click-to-sit

Added benefit--security 

  • Browser-viewer must use only browser-friendly transfer protocols.
  • A shift to https may give the security needed for counselling and therapy.

Browser-viewer is on the wish-horizon for OpenSim

Comments from Shawnkmaloney, Craftgrid

  • First thing I appreciated, was that I didn't have to go through the rigmarole of all the registering crap.
  • It was........ sloooooooooooow.
  • Just know, with the Firefox, I didn't have to work so hard to hear the fricken music, as you will finally hear, only after I made a jump to another region, or whatever browser worlds call a region.
