As virtual technologies move to the forefront of our digital landscape it’s difficult to keep up with pace of change. From animated VR gaming to 3D films, spherical imaging and 360 video, there’s been an explosive growth in the virtual ecosystem. Gaming technologies have been leading the charge in interactive storytelling and the creation of virtual worlds.
Animated virtual worlds like Second Life and The Sims allow players to explore and travel through their fantasy world, meet others, socialize, participate in activities, build, create and shop.
