Today’s Scene of the Day is from the wonderfully atmospheric Sansar experience Strange Lights, by Loki Eliot. This picture was taken by Second Life and Sansar user Lenni Foxtrot and posted to the Sansar group on Facebook today. Strange Lights has also been the site for our 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time/Sansar Time daily in-world meetups this week, hosted by Jenn, the Lead Community Manager for Sansar. (Unfortunately, this experience has also been crashing quite regularly, so the meetups have often been moved over to the Astro Port experience. If you can’t find us in Strange Lights, look for us today in Astro Port.)
One of the interesting differences between VR and desktop (non-VR) users of Sansar is the different way that “god rays” (like the ones in this photo) appear. When I visit Strange Lights while wearing my Oculus Rift VR headset, I do not see the “god rays” the same way that a desktop user of Sansar sees them.
Today’s Scene of the Day is from the experience called Newton’s Cenotaph, created by Mencius Watts of Ball State University’s IDIA Lab. It is the virtual model of a memorial to the scientist Sir Isaac Newton which was never built in the real world.
Here’s a timely experience for the upcoming solar eclipse in the U.S.A.! Sansar user MrsAnthropy (cute name!) has created this sci-fi experience called Instability.
As you can see, Moondira’s Home is a very trippy experience! I couldn’t tell if this is the pattern on the skybox, or a huge mesh construction!
As you might have guessed by the name, this experience was created by Moondira.
Isabelle also posted this picture to the Sansar group on Facebook, saying:
What simply stunning graphics and no Photoshop! Why would I need to, with graphics like this.
This picture was taken in Loz Hyde’s Sansar experience called Hunter Killer.
