World University and School would like to make virtual world building easier,
and much better,
than it already is for Anthropologists, and Anthro students,
to FREELY build their field sites,
interact and play in them,
... and do field work, in, for example,
ScienceSim (in OpenSim) and related ...
especially as virtual worlds develop ...
potentially contributing a significant new methodology to Anthropology.
(Building virtual Harbin will contribute to this) ...
... and for many, other, different, research disciplines,
... including architects, backpackers and landscapers, archaeologists, gardeners, and farmers,
and make it easy to create virtual wilderness areas, gardens, farms, cities and buildings
.... and with remarkable accuracy,
... inch by inch, row by row ...
all the way into the earth's core, virtually, and out into space ...
especially in terms of representational 'realism' and 'realistic' terrain generation ...
and learn digital skills, in the process ...
(... perhaps with an interface with AutuCad design program, or related programs)
... and eventually to make virtual world building as easy as creating
via a Brainwave device like
Tan Le's Headset
Andrew Junker's Brainfinger's headset
and eventually, for example, for a medical school, a hospital, physics & chemistry labs, scientific research, and everything we do in real life, through to the molecular, etc., levels ...
... and, in the process, improve on virtual classrooms in virtual worlds like SciSim, SL, OpenSim.
