Chilling to music

The music keeps changing, but good stuff nonethless (such as my chemical romance etc) here at Illusion Factory. Nicely designed. A few too many deckchairs though (in the shape of meditation cushions).

Always wanted to be a fairy at the top of the Xmas tree - checking out the Crayon offices on Crayonville. Season's Greetings all! :0)

Earth calling Google

Nasa and Google have finally made their partnership official by signing a Space Act Agreement. It means that Google will be able to bring us all sorts of virtual imaging goodies which may just be a little out of this world (!). It will just take some clever mashups to enliven what Nasa has to offer. Such other-worldly (ok, enough of the puns) goodies will include,
Real-time weather visualization and forecasting, high-resolution 3-D maps of the moon and Mars, real-time tracking of the International Space Station and the space shuttle will be explored in the future.
That is the bit that caught my eye. Imagine extending that into a 3D immersive environment. You could be in a virtual space shuttle with astroavatars (er, so the astronauts, except they are controlling their avatars as well as flying a tin can in zero gravity), while moving through Google Earth/Mars/Moon (which by this stage has a real-time updating mode too so that everything you see is fresh), the stars and planets all around you, all in real time, seeing what they are seeing. As if astronauts and Nasa have nothing better to do. Heh. How about a bespoke one built out of Multiverse's toolkit?

Fun eh? Damn more economical than Branson's ticket on Virgin Galactic!

Drilling through a laptop display

Whoa - I thought it was going to be like a Stargate type thing for a moment there.

You what: Mia Farrow to Discuss Darfur in Second Life

You just couldn't make this stuff up.

I applaud this, but it is just not a collection of words you would ever imagine seeing in that order.

**oops sorry - hit publish there by accident**

I might go along and see what it feels like to be in the virtual presence of "celebrity" like her. No need for plastic surgery there eh? I might go in as an alt called The Real Mia or something - I have been working on a geriatric alt for Second Life. Almost done my pretties.
