This is a real-time, "LIVE CAST" (4/10/2021) test video from inside the Immersion Island Dome project. Each artist /artist team will be given a time slot to showcase their "Dome" art for a given event or show. Here I am trying to get the streaming worked out and have added an inworld conference stream so that artists can contribute to discussions or add to the live performance event. This was all then screen-captured and streamed via Youtube. we can have this experience sharded so that 1,000 / 10,000 or more avatars can enjoy it simultaneously.

Visit: Navifun.net We did this project in 2012 but I keep it alive with the help of a small team. It was fun and ahead of the curve at that time and besides I really like our town and our little piece of paradise. Click the helicopter in the top menu to start the Heli 360.

I am building the "Immersion Island" to provide a VR meeting place, business space, and entertainment center. It will be a place of fun and happy adventures with dancing & free sailing, jetskis, sailboards, kayaks, wave skippers, and mini-subs to explore a magical reef during your visit. Immersion Island will feature a VR tradeshow & event space with 2 million square feet ready for vendor booths complete with real-world shopping from inside the VR world.

Imagine a Trade Show Shopping environment where cos-play meets gameplay and you can connect with the real world to do real business. This is a test of a small section of the 2,000,000 Square Foot "Immersion Island" Trade Zone. We can handle 1,000/ 10,0000 real-time avatars and more via sharding and Opensimulator improvements by Kitely. Join the celebration in your own BOT avatar and visit the set of "Timekeeper", a Fleabot adventure based in part on a giant animating kinetic sculpture time maze and the little bots that run the universe. Here showing approximately 50 NPC's (in this test) running on the Kitely server solution. I am using my P5000 from Shadow. Music by: South London HiFi https://soundcloud.com/southlondonhifi

OpenSimulator has been my tool of choice for the past 12 years for real-time project/product development for both the real world and the virtual world projects. A great team working together and independently to lend their skills and talents to help bring this FUN whimsical, immersive experience to life. Lots of details and fine-tuning taking place each day as we move closer to opening. Music: Youtube Library: Magical Gravity by : Asher Fulero, Modified

This "Extreme" LED training simulator would be mounted on a 6 DOF motion base with a turntable. The LED screen is mounted on a separate lift system so it can be lowered into position as the motion base brings the car up into active position. It is a Trainer and an attraction requiring approximately 600 sq. ft. and would also be built with real-time high resolution 360 graphics. The cars are real. The situational training is as real as it gets in a simulator. Fine tuning and great training equals a total Immersion experience. 911 GT2 RS world record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife : Porsche

"FOUNTAINS OF LIGHT" LED Fountain series: These LED fountain sculptures were inspired by the recent Denver Airport public art competition. Each piece was created to be an "island" of peace where travelers could rest, pause and refresh their psyche with magical sounds and color and light. These "Fountains of Light" would be engineered and constructed with with the blend of carbon fiber, resin soaked Nomex honey-comb, Steel tube sub frame and bulkheads, tensioned with an internal cable truss system tied back to the reinforced base. Each fountain would also be fitted with motion sensors that would sense movement and temperature causing the fountains to react to the visiting guests.

This is a world created in a VR environment with a great team. Each scene is filmed in VR and when this project is finished the plan is to make the whole experience open to the public. Our goal is to make immersive experiences that tell a compelling story and allow the guests to participate in the evolution of the adventure,with or without a headset.

It can be equipped with motion sensors and input devices to further enhance or augment the experience. The Gaia Garden is part of an IP being developed exclusively in a VR environment that uses actors and avatars and stunning environments to tell a compelling magical story about helping the planet, "Our Home" survive and thrive for the future. Here we see the princess visiting with Gaia and welcoming a new season to the secret garden. Music: Yellow Brick Cinema (re-sampled & augmented)

Technology and science now permeate our lives. The S.T.E.A.M. project, with the right mix of exhibits, attractions,events and experiences could act as a unique showcase and "Experience/ Discovery-Entertainment Center" where new and exciting immersive technologies could be showcased and enjoyed by all. Technology can be FUN ! Imagine the next generation "Dave & Buster's" meets the "Exploratorium" and the Baltimore Power Station. Live tours of this build in the VR production Studio are available via Skype. I am happy to help.

McKenzie River Discovery Center: Revised exterior design. Mckenzie River Discovery Center: This is a project design concept I put together for a friend to help a group understand what they should expect to experience in a "highly" interactive , state of the art, immersive museum experience in approximately 20,000 plus square feet and a budget of between $500 and $800 USD per square foot. Some of the exhibits we have already built in real-life, complete with motion base and interactive paddle systems, with R&S Production Services Inc. and would be revisited with all new technology and graphics. These exhibits would utilize all the latest in touch screen, gesture, AR/VR/MR, 360 3D, Projection mapping, LED and projection screens and sound mapping to immerse the guest in the latest state of the art in technology available. Special thanks to Peter Popp and Softmachine and the "Life of Trees"

About Me:
WOW! I just realized I have been creating,designing and building all kinds of fun projects for 50 years! Working in so many different media and now VR. Too cool!

Every day is a new chance to explore amazing fun technology. My first real job, at 19 was working in a typesetting shop that used steel type and hot lead typesetting machines. Cherry Hill Composition, across the bridge from Philly. We were working on Ray Bradbury books for Random House in New York City. I shoveled lead slugs, melted and poured ingots and ran a proof press and always kept my eye on the"Machine". The incredible Linotype machine. What an intricate machine! A mechanical computer! Google it! The place was alive and the people were brilliant! Amazing changes to live through.
