Oz Virtual to appear live at ECI

The next meeting of the Virtual Reality SIG  will be on this Thursday
evening, September 26th, at 7:30 PM. Featured will be the Icelandic wizards
at "Oz Interactive", one of the leaders in the field of developing tools
that enable multi-user, avatar based, 3D VRML worlds on the internet.
Joining us live for a demonstration will be Thor Gunnarsson, VP of Strategic
Relations at Oz Interactive. 

Thor will demonstrate the Oz Virtual client, which turns any VRML world into
a shared, multi-user, environment. Oz Interactive has also pioneered the new
field of using motion capture technology to animate avatars so they move as
humans do. Another development of  Oz Interactive is the SOFT2VRML
conversion utility that translates the geometry of 3D models created with
SoftImage’s advanced 3D authoring tools.

We will also welcome Gudjon Gudjonsson and Skuli Mogensson, two of the top
executives at Oz Interactive, who will join us from San Francisco via a
videoconferencing  session. The live event will be at The Electronic Café
International, located at 1649 18th Street in Santa Monica. Exit the 10
Freeway at Cloverfield, go north to Olympic, take a left to 18th Street,
then right to the end of the block. Turn into the last driveway on the
