   RE: [xml-dev] Another Microsoft XML patent

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Some of us are already there.  Real-time 3D chat 
is a reality. All running on international standards, 
cheap hardware, free clients, and so on.  

What is missing are the conceptual systems.  We know 
how to do that but actually, the VR systems work fine 
for that too.

The big problem is still cheap content.  Sites like 
Jewel of Indra (note: xxx) are created by artists 
from across the globe and have stunning content even 
some at game quality.  These guys even have their 
own streaming radio station with good quality and 
no drops outs, so real time 3D and streaming audio 
running on a 56k dialup.  Excuse me, but there are 
no technical obstacles; there is a big dearth of 
imagination and talent.

A viewpoint can also be expressed in 2D if I can, as a user, do some choices
of the kind of representation I want. But we are very far from there..... So
imagine now how far we are from virtual world.
