Virtual worlds apart


The Chinese rarely seem to do anything by half measures, so when Dr David Liu presented on the Cyber Recreation District being developed in Beijing, he described a facility that is 84 square kilometres in size. The CRD also includes the Dotman platform, a two-dimensional and three-dimensional portal, based on real-world economic mechanisms. Dr Liu emphasises the importance of the linkages between the real world and the virtual world. In one example, clothing designs from the real world are translated into the virtual world for sale to owners of avatars in the Dotman world. Consumers can personalise the clothing and the have it reproduced in the real world.
