520. Experience virtual reality
Updated September 7, 2009
Who else remembers VRML – Virtual Reality Markup Language – the language that was going to revolutionize the internet and allow web developers to create and manipulate three dimensional objects with just a few lines of code? I took a class in it. I built a tic-tac-toe board that crashed most computers.
I’m still waiting for the promise of virtual reality to be realized. I was so disappointed in how flat and unrealistic Second Life was – I had no idea what I was expecting, but I wanted it to feel real.
I want to be able to step into a booth or a room and suddenly feel like I’m somewhere else entirely.
