Cool insight into the future of virtual worlds & virtual reality

Gaming company creating amazing interactive space populated by ‘intelligent’ virtual boy

During my research over the last two weeks into Virtual Worlds and their use in education, I came across this incredible video demonstration of Lionhead Studio’s Project Natal. The gaming company has created a truly interactive virtual world environment, where people can interact with a very real seeming young boy named Milo. This is pretty incredible, so much so that I simply had to mention it here, as my mid-week post.

Take five minutes and check out this video – I’ll bet you’ll also be amazed by the potential that this presentation demonstrates for Virtual World & Virtual Reality applications:
