Check out the 3D gallery to see the newest experiments with using Unity 3D to see how Cosma might be implemented using some of the latest VR headsets (Cardboard, Gear VR, Oculus, Vive, etc.). Here are videos showing three of the experiments.

New Computer Museum, Virtual Edition


The above Cosma 3D Galleries and the New Computer Museum are experiments with using Unity 3D to re-implement an older project called Knowledge Places (K-Places). These 3D sites in SecondLife include hundreds of fun interactive objects framed within thematically organized spaces. Each space has “Magic Doors” that give landmarks to some of the best sites in SecondLife, “Magic Windows” that link to pages on this site and other special objects that link to great sites on the Web. These sites are very well-known, centrally located public spaces in Linden Village that date all the way back to 2006.
