We are presenting our 3D virtual environments to CAA2012 as a potential tool for recreating archaeological reconstructions. We have a 3D test environment running at present at http://wa692.avayalive.com When you click on this link you will be asked to download a plugin (agree to ActiveEx control) and you will appear in the environment as an avatar. This environment will allow for the simultaneous entry of 30 avatars. VOIP is embedded so you can chat normally with anyone else in the vicinity ( a headset is recommended). Sorry it is only PC accessible presently but will be MAC compatible in early2012 It is possible to import any 3D format file such as .obj, .max, .3DS, .lwo to develop extensive immersive educational spaces capable of experiencing in a group setting.
