A Holographic World

World Builder” is a very nicely produced (and touching) short film by Bruce Banit. From the Vimeo page: “A strange man builds a world using holographic tools for the woman he loves.” This is the kind of virtual reality I long for, even if it were just on the Xbox. All the first-person shooter games are great fun, but I wish developers would invest more time in games/open-ended environments like this. I know, of course, that some will point out that Second Life is close, but their rendering engine still doesn’t match what the shooter games manage.1

  1. Of course, I haven’t been in Second Life for about a year and a half–maybe it’s time to re-visit.
