If this 18 page document does not show after you click on the picture please hit refresh. This document is my creative/technical work product for this new project under development. I usually do this on all my projects, but I don't show them in my portfolio often. The client is very happy and that makes me very happy.

This video is the current generation in the development process. We started big, blue sky and fun and have massaged it down to reality and fun. This building works best with the existing other historic structures on the site and through the magic of "design engineering" we are transforming a classic barn design into a value engineered construction solution using steel truss systems similar to a Butler building. We anticipate some nice facility cost savings critical for this type of project. The design intent is to merge and celebrate the past and explore the future with engaging stories and content using fun immersive / interactive technologies.

I have been looking at this 300 acres for the past 30 years as a possible destination experience. This past year I put my thoughts on paper just for fun to see what it might look like. I pushed the main show and event tent structure to a staggering 400,000 sq. feet exploring alternative open-air free-span venue ideas. Just having some fun and trying to make something good happen.

This is a design for one of my LED sculptures. It is inspired by "Flight" and "Space Exploration". This video is part of an NFT I have offered through Minatable. The NFT will also be a purchase order for a full-size LED sculpture with custom video and audio content. The price of the NFT will cover all costs for the fabrication and installation of this piece anywhere in the world. ( special import-export taxes not included) It will be engineered & crafted to exacting specifications and using quality materials from an award-winning LED manufacturer.

This is a real-time, "LIVE CAST" (4/23/2021) 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.

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

Working hard to get "Immersion Island" up and running. Doing more tests and finding more great talent to showcase in the Virtual Dome. Immersion Island will be a place of free fun and happy adventures with dancing & free: VR sailing, jetskis, sailboards, kayaks, wave skippers and mini subs to explore a magical reef during your visit. Hopefully a real shelter from this storm we all are dealing with. Did I mention Real world shopping?

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

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!

At the bottom of this page are page numbers that link to 9 pages of my other projects and work.

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...
