Middleware.Systems, a new company created by long-standing OpenSim developer James Stallings, has launched its first app on the Sine.Space virtual world platform.
The slide show app is an inworld furniture item users can spawn in their regions, that allows them to upload slides and present to an audience.
Presenters upload slides from their desktop and can immediately present to everyone in their region.
The slide show tool is particularly useful for business and education users accessing Sine.Space through the browser, where presenting through the platform's native browser surface component is not supported.
“It is not possible to run a browser inside another browser. James' new tool solves that problem, making it easy to import images directly to a region and presenting them to users without needing to use the inworld browser.” Commented Adam Frisby, CEO and CTO at Sine Wave Entertainment, developers of the Sine.Space virtual world platform.
“There is a strong correlation between business and education users; who want presentation tools like this; and the browser login to Space. This is an elegant solution and it is great that anyone can drop the presentation tool into their own region from their inventory.” Commented Julie LeMoine, CEO of HorizonIRs, a development company who is already using and building a number of different virtual world projects for enterprise and education clients on the Sine.Space platform.
James commented "I'm really looking forward to Space updating to Unity 5.6, as that will open the doors to a lot of scripting features we have been implementing."
Middleware.System is planning more apps later this year, including reporting and analytics tools users can add to their regions.
