News and Confessions About Immersion World Building

The Wonders of OARs
As of late I've been building an OAR from scratch. There is something comforting about building on your own hard drive without the aggravations of bandwidth. Once the project is done it can be loaded in to a 8G flash stick (SIMONASTICK) and sent out for others (students and friends) to discover. Since its a uniquely personal experience, its more like oil painting - a work of art to brush in the terrain with a texture you've fashioned yourself. More coming soon.
