Google Earth for the Human Body

caocao-3
Behold Google's Body Browser in WebGL -- Google Earth for the Human Body (And the Shape of Avatars to Come)

The Google Body Browser is very cool application of WebGL, the 3D graphics protocol that was just integrated into Google Chrome's Beta channel today. To check it out, you'll of course need to download Chrome Beta or Firefox Beta. It displays a human body in full 3D, and at the moment (it's only a 20% complete application), you can move your camera view around it entirely.

Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

Patricia F Anderson
I didn't find it spammy at all. It was very interesting, and relevant
in that the link discussed how avatars might be developing in the
future. Are there explicit restrictions or guidelines for posting to
the list? Puzzled, Patricia

(My apologies if this comes through twice - I accidentally posted from
the wrong email address.

Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

Posts to this list should have something to do with OpenSim.

I don't know of many good lists for discussing virtual world/environment topics in general.  One such is the
VirtualWorlds group on Linkedin

http://www.linkedin.com/groups?mostPopular=&gid=744527

(which is members only but anybody who applies is added, afaik).

Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

andrew johnson-3

i agree - cause when someone sends unrelated item that nothing do with opensim - they should realise that non opensim discussion should be posted in different group

OFF TOPIC Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

Villano, Paul Mr CIV USA TRADOC
In reply to this post by caocao-3
While I didn't see the harm of the off topic note, below, that seemed to upset some people, recommend that any future postings that don't directly involve Open-Sim be labelled OFF-TOPIC in the subject.  Also that it NOT be called "spam."  Spam has come to have a meaning of something harmful, including viruses, phishing attempts, etc.  Not only did this note not fit that category but that label could cause alarm that is unintended and unmerited.  OFF-TOPIC would allow folks to quickly delete notes without reading them while not accusing (directly or indirectly) anyone of serious wrongdoing.

Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

Fleep Tuque
In reply to this post by justincc
I'm not in charge of moderating this list and I will of course honor the guidance of those who do, but I'd like to respectfully voice an objection.   I think the original post is of great interest to the community of opensim users.  

I'm sure I'm not the only one who hopes to see the opensim community continue to grow, and a key component of any community's growth is having communication channels to share relevant information.  In my view, something does not have to be only about opensim to be relevant, useful, or of interest to the opensim userbase.  And yet in the few months I've been subscribed I've seen several users chastised for sharing relevant information.  It's very unwelcoming and surprising to a newcomer.

Perhaps it might be helpful for whoever is in charge to write some kind of introductory description on the opensim-users listserv page specifically noting the strict posting guidelines.  I have participated in zillions of listservs in my time and I don't think I've ever seen one as restrictive as this one about topicality.   I think it's unfortunate and a poor choice if the goal is community growth, but if that is the way it is then that should be very clearly communicated on the listserv sign up page so at least people will understand that this user list is not like other user lists they may have used where broader information sharing is encouraged.

Communicating the forum boundaries in advance is far better than (sometimes rudely) chastising people who are trying to share relevant information in good faith and had no way of knowing that it wasn't welcome.


Sincerely,

Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

Damon Hindermann
Well said Chris/Fleep.  I totally agree.  This group should either be a little more open and friendly or at least make it clear that that it's not.  I find many of the topics covered here have little relevance to me and I just delete them.  It's really not that hard.  But now and then, something comes across that I need to know and that's the value I find in this group.

Re: Google Earth for the Human Body

Kim Flintoff
I concur...

It's a very closed mind that sees OpenSim development as a purely technical undertaking.  The whole notion of expansion and future directions and capabilities will come from an outward looking stance.

Interdisciplinary approaches are always disruptive but ultimately far more generative than single perspective vision.
