ADL Sandbox project and Virtual World Framework
I am very excited with the ADL Sandbox project and Virtual World Framework at all, and that it is available in open source to experiment with.
By the way, I am from Smalltalk world and an acceptor of OpenCroquet architecture, which has it's own history. OpenCroquet in it's latest form of OpenQwaq take all the features and benefits from the platform being realized on (the open source Smalltalk language dialect Squeak).
But, Virtual World Framework goes further now, especially in moving from class based language architecture to prototypes, that gives a shared code and behaviours used in distributed computation, to be modified at runtime!
More over the integration between LivelyKernel and Virtual World Framework will give the endless capabilities of in browser project development and editing.
So, I have started using the ADL Sandbox project and Virtual World Framework to build a Virtual Learning Environment for modern mathematics and phisics, exploring the new ways of developing the concrete tools for modelling, rendering and interaction with the content of the virtual world.
Will post about the progress here.
