The only difference between HOTRC
and Parliament is that Lucien isn't smart enough to fiddle the expenses.
In the present Internet-based demonstration, two users with preloaded HOTRC software play the virtual rowing game using dial-up connections to the Internet through a commercial ISP.
But more development and testing effort is required, particularly in the area of streamlining the user set-up procedures, in order to support a multi-station HOTRC demonstration on our IC3D Web site, as planned.
These are described on our IC3D web site, which also contains a scaled-down version of HOTRC.
The success of the HOTRC demonstration shows how this powerful architecture can help establish next-generation collaborative 3D applications for education, commerce and communication, as well as for entertainment.
Head of the River Challenge, or HOTRC
, was created together with Shout Interactive of San Francisco as a proof-of-concept demonstration of Perceptronics' InterGame Framework.
