Healthcare in Wonderland

The folks at Birmingham City University are moving along well in building their new communication and training models for healthcare professionals using Project Wonderland. The photo below shows some of the fine modeling work, most of the apps they need running in-world and even new Evolver avatars!

+ Spaces

Here's some info on the latest Wonderland effort as part of European FP7 initiative. Dr. Michael Gardner at Essex who headed up the MiRTLE Project with us is the PI now on + Spaces.


New EU FP7 project +Spaces to start in January 2010


Recently funded by the EU Framework 7 ICT programme (call 4), the +Spaces project (Positive Spaces: Policy Simulation in Virtual Spaces) will start in January 2010. The value of the award to the University of Essex is 316,000 EURO over 30 months, and the project involves partners from IBM, Fraunhofer, ATOS Origin, University Leuven, Athens Technology Centre, University of Athens, and the Hellenic Parliament. The PI at the University of Essex is Michael Gardner. This project will be building on the well established work in developing virtual world and mixed-reality applications using the open-source Project Wonderland toolset from Sun microsystems. +Spaces aims to provide novel technologies and instruments that will allow government bodies to measure public opinion on a large scale and maximise the outcomes of prospective policy measures by leveraging the power of online communities. From the +Spaces perspective, virtual worlds form a vast reserve of group knowledge that, once aggregated and properly processed, can be incorporated in the policy making process
