I will admit, I'm jealous! I may find a way to get my SL self rendered in there.

Metacam Oh

Wow, great feature that no one needs or would use.

:0 i had a kewl dream a few weeks ago, that i had an ipad (no, the dream wasn't -only- about having an ipad! ;0) - but holding it up to the horizon outside, seeing on its screen the trees rolling across the hills, and the blue sky above it (hint: easily keyable!) - and seeing instead of blank sky (as with my own eyes), on screen seeing the "cloverfield" monster ripping up the countryside, coming my way!! ;0 (can't be seen rl perhaps with some sort of "they live" conceit ;0)

someone =surely= could come up with a localized adventure game that led them to rl cafes, parks, etc etc, at certain times of day, to show either 'real life people' in an augmented reality (they're "trapped in the other dimension"), or monsters, puzzles, etc - all of course that "aren't there", but that can exist at certain rl places. would be extensive to truly 'localize'; customize the puzzle-mapping to individual locales... but kinda neat possibly?? :)

another much, much older dream i had, not long after first coming to sl: i dreamed of an slcon someday in the future, where we were all walking around rl, with belt-attached projectors that displayed our holograpic avatars in rl among the room - still controllable with HUDs/danceballs, lol, and having a simulatneous rl/sl party!! :) that's a big 'someday' though...

1) Photograph real world locations.

2) Import into SL

3) Texture on a big cube.

4) Take screenshots of avatar in front of the cube.

5) Wonder what all the fuss is about.

I've done some AR dev using Papervision3D/Flash and I must say, this is pretty nifty. The fact that it's pulling up and using your own avatar files is impressive. I know it's just a fun little gimmick in this usage instance but the tech behind it is impressive.
