Get your arse to Mars - and now everywhere else too

posted in Virtual Reality by Cargo Cult on Friday June 10 2016

Anyone for a Workshop-enabled, virtual reality scene-sharing system? In an initial step towards some sort of dystopian metaverse (that, or glorious virtual tourism across our planet and beyond), please welcome the latest thing wot I've been working on - the Source 2-powered Destinations.

Destinations

Includes an improved, updated version of the photogrammetric Mars scene shown at the Museum of Flight's Spacefest event late last year, and relayed in degraded form here via the medium of random YouTube video:

SPAAAAACE

Hello, you either have plugins turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

There's also a tranquil, digitised scene of a wintry, sunlit Derbyshire churchyard (Seattle failed to provide much in the way of ancient architecture) and, most importantly of all - whatever everyone else across the internet uploads. So if you've got a hankering to capture the world and share it virtually with others, here's your chance.

Edit 2016-06-14: now with bonus Scott Manley!
