One more class – 3D Virtual Reality

Today I went to “From physical to virtual spaces and back” with Jean-Marc Gauthier.
The class will explore how to create virtual worlds in 3D and affect them using controls/sensors from the physical world and vice versa.
Our first assignment is to create a machinima video capture (record on video what your 3D character does inside the 3D world) using Second Life, Google Earth or any other virtual space thinking about the spectator in an attempt to show something interesting/funny/instructional within the 3D world.
One idea I had was to join some people within Second Life and do a competition or race to see who builds the coolest object for example – or who can build something faster.. . 🙂
