Breaking News of Next Generation Virtual World

LivePlace.com are apparently working on 'City Space' an advanced 3D multi-user virtual world. News is circulating that movie quality graphics and ultra usability in this platform will be available soon. A video is currently also circulating that shows an extremely impressive urban virtual world with photo quality graphics. The game is running on OTOY, the 3D engine that renders graphics in the cloud. The technology allows relatively weak computers (or even mobile phones) to display incredibly detailed graphics comparable to those seen in Hollywood movies.

See the clip:


Although some bloggers are claiming this footage is fake (i.e., not rendered in real time) the video is convincing. If this footage is real and we can expect to see this quality graphics then the implications for psychological immersion are profound. How long before we reach totality and the physical world is augmented by ultra realistic 3D virtual environments?

The video and some of the above text were clipped from: www.techcrunch.com


UPDATE 10th May 2009... It appears that at least part of the rendering footage is from other sources and therefore the credibility of the venture might be questioned. See this original footage as identified by member deputydog on VideoSift.com
