1,000

Yesterday, we saw a bit of a milestone for us as we reached 1,000 members in the Sun Immersion SIG all interested in seeing the attempt to bring Project Wonderland, Project Darkstar and SunSPOT technologies together into a single open development and deployment 3-D Web platform strategy for education, business and entertainment. It was also great to see the latest project videos that Shamini posted yesterday including the Yumin Primary School Virtual Classroom and Uniquely Singapore ICT2010 worlds. I can't wait to see what they can do with v0.5.

Irmos & Project Wonderland

Fabrizio Cardinali, CEO of Giunti Labs, will reveal the preliminary results of the Interactive Realtime Multimedia Applications on Service Oriented Infrastructures (IRMOS) Project at the 'Immersive Education Summit' - being held at the London School of Economics in London this week.


The IRMOS Project is a 36 month, 12.9m Euro project awarded by the European Commission to a Consortium of 13 leading European organisations. The project aims to develop 'real-time' interaction between people and applications over a service oriented infrastructure (SOI), where processing, storage and networking need to be combined and delivered with guaranteed levels of service.
Within the scope of the IRMOS Project, Giunti Labs is developing one of the user
scenarios for Interactive Real-time Location Based Learning, integrating its Harvestroad Hive Digital Repository and learn eXact Mobile Learning technologies with the Project Wonderland and Project Darkstar Virtual
Worlds and collaboration platforms, running on top of the IRMOS
SOI infrastructure.

Very cool stuff and the beginning of our latest new strategic business partnership in Immersion

Metaverse U

Paul and I met up with Henrik for a nice chat and some darn good pizza at Cafe Zoetrope last week to work out the details of our participation in Metaverse U this year. We're all set to go now for the Project Wonderland presentation and demo of the new 0.5 platform and we're really looking forward to a great event at Stanford on May 29th.
