As we find out on today’s Designing Worlds show.
We’ll be live in our Northpoint studio at 2pmSLT, and we’ll be showing clips and segments from our recent exploration of the Reaction Grid and discussing them with Kyle Gomboy, the creator of Reaction Grid, and Chris Hart, the Chief Technical Officer.
The Reaction Grid has been created primarily for Education, and education and experiments by educators provide some of our excerpts. Hayley Dunning is working with students aged between 7 and 14 to build an island that shows something of the history of Michigan – and shows us something of what they have created – including a functioning water wheel!
We also explore the fantastical mathematical builds of Wizard Gynoid who are been creating some models that are not only Not Possible in Real Life – they’re Not Possible in Second Life either!
Being able to see and move through these models certainly gives a whole new perspective on the possibilities of immersions.
We also talk to educator Viv Tragfalgar about why she is developing a sim in the Rection Grid, and then visit one of the most stunning builds on the Reaction Grid – a work in progress, which is a re-creation of the 1939 New York World’s Fair – and we meet Paul Van Dort, who is working to create an amazing immersive experience here!
The show will be live in the studio and after the show, we hope there will be an opportunity for our audience to ask Kyle and Chris further questions raised by the show.
The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be in our Northpoint studios by 1.30pm to make sure of getting a seat. Or tune in at 2pm SLT on Tuesday for the live show – where you can now chat with other audience members and even some of the participants during the show – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site.
