VastPark Pumpkin?

A friend of mine recently sent me a picture of a pumpkin she carved for Halloween that looks uncannily similar to the VastPark logo.

Do you see the resemblance?

On the topic of Halloween, it reminds me of some machinima that was shot using VastPark a couple of years ago:

FCVW 2010

In May of 2010, VastPark again exhibited at the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds in Washington DC.

As with the previous year, we provided a way for people who were unable to attend in person to attend virtually:

We also were involved in the keynote by Dr. Robert Childs, following some very cool work by ImageMetrics as shown in this video:

The VastPark portion of the video begins at 5:08, prior to that you are seeing ImageMetrics in action.

Greatest Crossfit video ever

Those of you who know me well will know of my addiction to Crossfit, I saw this video linked from my local and felt compelled to share!

Warning: NSFW, contains some f-bombs

Dem bones, dem bones, dem…digital bones

The creative department have been craving bones for a very long time in VastPark and we’ve finally added support for them, both in scripting and via plugin.

Here’s a teaser:

Virtual FCVW

Generally when on the road with VastPark at conferences/expos, I’m deprived of the opportunity to see many of the speakers and round table sessions that occur as I’m usually run off my feet speaking to people at the stand.

As I sit here at the VastPark booth during the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds during one of the few quiet periods I’m able to do both!

It’s nearing the end of the day here in Washington but the feed will be live again tomorrow and you can certainly follow the twitter feeds post conference.

The Park is Vast moves to theparkisvast.com

Decided to get the domain while it was still available, so welcome to the new home of my blog at www.theparkisvast.com!

Welcome!

For those who haven’t yet heard of VastPark, its an interactive media platform that allows you to create and share your very own 3D website (think of it as a cross between MySpace and YouTube in 3D). Currently it consists of a WYSIWYG editor similar to Dreamweaver to create and publish 3D sites and a browser application used to browse the sites.

I intend to use this blog to detail my personal VastPark site(s), including tips on howÂ
I have made them from the design process all the way through to getting the site live.
