IMA web-world: a sample of virtual worlds. Join a meeting, talk to live people from the other side.Infinite Metaverse Alliance has begun to develop a small 3D world (a web-world) that runs in a browser.  It is only a sample of what can be done in bigger 3D virtual worlds, but they require you to install a viewer.  This sample lets you see what a virtual world is like and to talk to some of the real people who populate the virtual worlds.  Here we introduce the beta version.IMA web-world, beginner’s instructionsIMA web-worldTo Begin: Click on the image to begin MOUSELOOK (Accept permissions if asked).To exit MouseLook Press escape.Mouselook is first person, as if you are looking through your own eyes.To Walk: Keys WASD to move Forward, Back, Left and Right.To Change Direction: Move your mouse in the direction you wish to go.To Fly Up: Keys Q or E.To Fly Down: Keys Z or CNote: some choices are forced because the page is embedded in the browser.MilestonesThe cabin was imported from OpenSimulator. That shows that we can build web-worlds from OS resources.Voice was adequate to handle a meeting of a least 10 people.Come in, we are expecting youThis web world will probably be occupied when IMA holds meetings.IMA has scheduled meetings at 1:30 California time on Wednesdays and Fridays.I expect to be at most of those meetings and I will be in this IMA web-world also.*******************************************************************(More after the break, scroll down!)********************************************************************** Metaverse events, current and upcomingArt of the Artists: [email protected] Machinima Challenge (L$350,000 Prize Pool) Create a film with a work of art.A web page you can walk intoHypergrid Writer’s CommunityIMA Blog3D web-worlds of the browser (G+ community)Mal Burns: Inworld ReviewTry a browser-based virtual worldSelby’s daily news collection:  Virtual worlds are real   Virtual Outworlding news collection Events on the Hypergrid: HYPEventsEntertainment on the HypergridHYPERGRID EVENTSDestination guide: OpenSimWorldHyperica, Directory of Opensimulator hypergrid destinationsOpensim AAM Virtual PerformersWELCOME TO SEANCHAI LIBRARIESVirtual world G+ communities:  Communities virtual worlds G+In a virtual world, your deodorant never fails.*************************************************************Who can use it?You are welcome to visit it at IMA web-world.Bring friends if you like and talk with them.If the place is not otherwise in use, you are welcome to hold a meeting.Or have a family gathering.  We recommend the Chrome browser.This is the virtual world for your grandmother.Recent test resultsObservationsWe got at least 10 avatars (and probably 11) in with no evident problems.Seven or eight people were talking with few problems.We noted that one or two people had problems getting voice to connect and had to reload the page.Problems identifiedVoice sometimes does not connect correctly.   You can hear people, but they cannot hear you.  Or they may hear your voice at a frequency so high that it sounds like squeaking.  Remedy: reload the page. Sometimes people arrive at a new instance of the web-world with nobody there.Even though there are other people in another instance.We do not know the cause.Remedy: reload the page.RelatedWeb-worlds in useIMA Community web site: Visit a web-world.Web-worlds in your browser: Visitor’s guide**************************GeneralWeb-world: Marketing.
