Could you ever imagine meeting up with 50,150 or even 500 people in an environment created to contain dimensionally accurate buildings with high resolution graphics and high polygon 3D models? It is now entirely possible to do so at the click of one single solitary URL weblink. The apartments were originally created to prove the viability of importing CAD 3D models into the UNREAL 2.5 platform and have them available for specific projects where the teams would require a download of the the rendering into a copy of the UT 2004. However NORTEL has now provided a compatible, convenient delivery system in a browser embedded client on the web.alive platform which allows for a simple mouse click to enter and meet up with colleagues to discuss the architectural and construction details of the project
If you have followed this blog you must already have a grasp of the implications of this MellaniuM/NORTEL symbiotic relationship. If one deliberates upon the stream of converging utilities and applications the mind does indeed boggle.
The proven use of Creaform 3D scanners to produce virtual replicas and avatars such as "La Fontaine de Tourny" scanned and shown in this YouTube movie, the capability of AI scripting to produce NPC's in archaeological verisimilitudes and the absolute pinnacle of virtual immersion potentiality "the CAVEUT" projection concept using a domed enclosure and single aspherical lens to project can only lead to the oft stated comment "Oh! the possibilities". A deluge of possibilities is opened up by this first extensive MellaniuM/NORTEL development.
Can you ascend to the very top of the angular columns adjacent to the apartments?(as in the above shot) give it a try at http://ec11.projectchainsaw.com
