Earth-Analog Augmented Reality
The views expressed below are not necessarily those of the Open Metaverse Research Group, but are the author's alone.
Creating virtual worlds that move beyond the legacy model of a flat grid to spherical planetary geometries allow for a number of features:
Space Flight Realism
Accurate Physics Modeling
Creating an Analog Earth for both Virtual and Augmented Reality allows for projection of virtual content into the real world as well as interactivity with users who are solely operating in a location on the virtual plane of existence while their real bodies are elsewhere on the planet. This would have the benefits of:
- Eliminating Travel In A Post-COVID World.
- Enabling Person to Person 3d Communication.
- Enabling Gamification of Any Real Estate
- Leveraging Virtual Space as an advertising layer for commercial land holders
