In diesem immersiven Labor werden virtuelle Welten und zukünftige Möglichkeiten und Horizonte für das 3D-Internet entwickelt und erforscht. Diese Erlebniswelten kennen wir von Simulationen und Games. Als Digital Natives sind wir bereits zu Produzenten und Konsumenten – sogenannte Prosumer – in kollaborativen Wissens-Produktionen geworden. Die Vernetzung von dreidimensionalen Inhalten bietet Möglichkeiten, kollaboratives Arbeiten in realen und virtuellen Welten voranzubringen.

The Collaborative Virtual Worlds Lab is running on the open source server software Opensimulator.
High Fidelity enables you to use common formats, tools and languages to build complex interactive experiences, share processing power among users and scale to thousands of people and petabytes of data in a single space.
Zuse was the first to propose that physics is just computation, suggesting that the history of our universe is being computed on, say, a cellular automaton. His “Rechnender Raum” (Computing Cosmos / Calculating Space) started the field of Digital Physics in 1967. Today, more than three decades later, his paradigm-shifting ideas are becoming popular.
OpenSim grids reported an increase of 5,184 active users this month, for a new high of 30,804 users. Almost all of the increase in active users was due to the hypergrid — 4,421 new actives, or 85 percent of the total.
With that in mind, here are the ten most popular grids this month:
InWorldz: 8,293 active users / Metropolis: 3,249 active users / OSgrid: 3,075 active users / Avination: 1,381 active users / Craft World: 1,052 active users / Kitely: 961 active users

OpenSimulator (OpenSim) is a 3D Application Server1. It can be used to create a 3D Virtual World (ala Second Life™), and includes facilities for creating custom avatars, chatting with others in the environment, building 3D content in world, and creating complex 3D applications in world. OpenSimulator can also be extended via loadable modules or web service interfaces to build more custom 3D Applications. OpenSimulator is released under a BSD License, making it both open source, and commercially friendly to embed in products.
The OpenSim Hypergrid2 is an extension to opensim that allows you to link your opensim to other opensims on the internet, and that supports seamless agent transfers among those opensims. It can be used both in standalone mode and in grid mode. The hypergrid is effectively supporting the emergence of a Web of virtual worlds.
The Diva Distribution3 is an easy opensim installation with a simple Front End Account Manager.
NewWorld Studio4 is a preconfigured standalone opensim for beginners with GUI manager.
