Today’s Designing Worlds show has been postponed – but we will be back next week with the first of our promised visits to the Second Life Thirteenth Birthday.

We hope to see you all then!

We will have our usual viewing party at 2pm Monday 4th July at our studio in Garden of Dreams when we’ll be re-showing the episode where we visited Eliza Wierwight’s new Banyan House.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – as we visit the beautiful island of Rocca Sorrentina, an imagining of a late eighteenth century island in the Bay of Naples – is now on the web.

We are joined by two of the people behind Rocca Sorrentina (or Principal Magistrates as they are called) Aldo Stern and Sere Timeless. They take us on a journey of discovery as we learn about the rich culture that flourished in the Kingdom of Naples (much visited on the Grand Tour), and the history that lay behind it, reaching back to the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius.

And we also learn about the culture and exhibitions staged by Rocca Sorrentina, as Elrik explores a fascinating exhibition on the history of the Tarot … and we learn of upcoming exhibitions too.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – as we meet Oz, Troy and Vir Linden to talk about the exciting possibilities of project Bento – is now on the web.

 

 

We also meet some of the resident creators already working on exciting Project Bento features – Mahadma, Medhue Simioni, Teager, and Aki Shichiroji.

Essentially, Project Bento adds a wealth of attachment points to avatars that can also be animated. But more – it’s about extra bones to the entire skeleton. This gives the possibility for anything from a single ironically raised eyebrows to an amazingly flexible wyvern to ride.

You’ll see the potentials – from beautifully expressive faces to amazing control and detail possible in wings, tails, hands, and so on!

As Troy Linden says: “Project Bento is about the reinvention of the Second Life skeleton. Think of it as the long awaited version 2.0.”
