Oculus Rift in SL

Cross posting on UWAinSL Blog:

Yay! First one on my block to use the Oculus Rift in SL. Like most people who got the device, I was waiting for the announcement that LL had their project viewer ready. It’s supposed to be ready “late summer”, but we all know how that goes. In the meantime David Rowe (Second Life: Strachan Ofarrel ), an independent developer, has announced the release of his alpha CtrlAltStudio Viewer with basic support for Rift.

You’ve seen the hype, and it is indeed an exciting technology. But before you run out and plunk down your $300US for the Rift beta device, remember it’s still in development. (I got mine with the assistance of UWA as a research fellow.) There’s very little tech support and it’s really intended for people who want to develop software for the device so they’ll be ready when the thing actually hits Amazon. I’ve heard several casual . . . → Read More: Oculus Rift in SL

Courage and Vision

I know a lot of people will be blogging about the new show by Chuckmatrix Clip titled Inner Prisons, which opened along with another show (Escapes by Dan Freeland – more about that below) Wednesday at Art India Galleries (hosted by VK Navarathna), both curated by Quan Lavender. Quan has clearly learned that the key to a successful show is inviting the right artists. I won’t go into a lot of detail about these shows, mostly because they speak for themselves, both by their content and by the statements provided by the curator and by the artists.

I have known Chuck’s work for several years, since early in my experience in SL, when I started visiting art galleries and spaces like Chilbo, Ars Simulacra, Crescent Moon, and Blackwater. The best artists in those days were doing remarkable things with normal prims. Because that’s what they had. No sculpts, no Windlight, certainly no meshes.

But I rarely shop for shoes….

OK, I admit I’m an unrepentant shopaholic. More significantly, I’m a sucker for a good freebie. I have an astonishing collection of …..stuff.. My inventory is well over 120K (even after some recent housekeeping). I often tell people I’m my own Wal-Mart. If there’s anything I ever really need, odds are pretty high that I already have one somewhere. Yes, finding things can be a challenge, but I do try to organize things into categories and I’m reasonably good at searching.

Anyway, I’ve gotten a lot of really amazing deals over the years and I never tell people about them because, hey, I don’t want everyone walking around with the same outfits, right?… I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about a shopping experience. I’m making a small exception here.

Yesterday I happened across BehaviorBody Animations, a shop owned by Anto (antosperandeo.allen) that sells his high quality poses and animations made primarily for fashion models (both . . . → Read More: But I rarely shop for shoes….
