Trends in the Living Networks

He was on interviewed on the 7pm Project last night about the dangers of 3D TV ( see the video here ) so we chatted about that. Mark has been involved in 3D for close to two decades, most famously in creating Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML), and before that helping Sega to develop a head-mounted display in the 1990s. This is why the 3D of films doesn't feel quite right. So it seems that the 3D TV manufacturers think there's an issue here.

How 3D printing will transform the retail industry: The opportunities

Trends in the Living Networks

Power Retail magazine has just published a very nice piece on 3D Printing: The Next Retail Revolution , drawn primarily from an interview with me. The piece begins by discussing the news that a company is developing technology for the 3D printing of meat. This need not be a significant limitation for the initial phase of 3D printing, where a small selection of resins and plastics will support many initial uses for the household, such as kitchen utensils and simple toys.

Massively multi-player sex games - Trends in the Living Networks

Trends in the Living Networks

About Ross Dawson Keynote Speaking/Strategy AHT Group Future Exploration Network The Insight Exchange Repyoot Recent Media Appearances « Online video heats up | Main | Newspaper headlines and search optimization » Massively multi-player sex games Ross Dawson, April 7, 2006 6:08 PM US PT Click on the image for a trial of Red Light Center, the most popular multiplayer 3D virtual sex game This is going to be big. Naughty America: The Game is a massively-multiplayer game, due out in the next few months, in which players assume the role of characters who meet, date, and have sex. Up until now the big multiplayer role-playing games such as Everquest and World of Warcraft have been set in fantasy worlds. Now it will be in sexual fantasy worlds, where characters can invite others back to their apartment, designed to their own taste with home decorator tools. Or they can flirt or have sex in a whole variety of realms including the beach, back alleys, a cruise ship, or theme rooms such as make-your-own-porn. And just so it isn’t too tame, you can switch to sex mode, where you can turn on personal webcams, or of course set up in-the-flesh dates. A good overview article discusses some of the ins-and-outs of the market, including how Naughty America intends to deal with distribution, fears of sexual predators, and bringing people into a new experience. However, interestingly, Second Life , the biggest free-form online world, is said to be one-third based on sexual interactions. I think that the only potential limitation here is the quality of the graphics. But if it’s not good enough now, it will be soon. Having recently delved into World of Warcraft and been staggered at how far the multiplayer online games have come in the last years, I don’t doubt that a significant portion of many people’s lives will be spent in virtual worlds, as and when the graphic and interaction quality is up to it. And sex will be part of that virtual interaction.
