OpenSim on a tablet


Keith Selmes, friend of the blog and both a real world creative and virtual world content creator, has been using his Motorola Xoom tablet to navigate around in his Kitely world. in the photo below, you note that the avatar has little detail and that the scene is not as rich as in a regular viewer

but . . . depending on your use or purpose for virtual worlds, this is a huge step in the right direction. tablet access would work very well for our Enclave Harbour project because we only need students to see “3D illustrations” of science concepts

in case you missed it last month, Nick Zwart posted pics of Lumiya running on his Android phone and for $2.95 it’s a bargain!

read more about Lumiya from their site and try it out – the more usage it gets, the better the chances of further development! =)

  3. I have been using Lumiya a bit too. Even though it is not fully featured as a viewer (eg: the your avatar is grey and without attachments), it is still a big step towards portable virtual worlds.

  4. NB some of the posts at the end of my link refer to earlier versions and they are not necessarily in date order so it could be confusing.
