Tokyo vampire in mirror world

今の気分: アツイ
カテゴリー: インターネット/パソコン
I wrote the report article of the virtual world artist event the day before yesterday.

The guest of the event is techno unit "Aural Vampire".

They already hold show in Second Life four times, and even hold fan meeting event in Japanese virtual world "Daletto world" (Unfortunately "Daletto world" Shut down in September)

And they did a guest-shot in Japanese virtual world "meet-me" in a Halloween party on October 31.

"meet-me" is the mirror world which reproduced 23 wards of Tokyo.

The article is written only in Japanese, but there are a lot of photo. Please check it!

By the way, a Halloween party was held in Ariake,Tokyo of the real world on that day. (And Aural Vampire performed a show, too)

Halloween with real and Virtual and both!


Traveling Avatar iPhone application

Tokyo based startup 1pac Inc. launched iPhone application "TRAVATAR".

"TRAVATAR" is the coined word that mixed "trip" with "avatar".

Compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch
iPhone OS 3.0 is necessary
language: Japanese

"TRAVATAR" does a trip from my iPhone to other user's iPhone and gets a message from other users automatically.

In addition, other TRAVATAR comes to my space while my TRAVATAR travels.

You can register favorite TRAVATAR as "TOMOVATAR". "TOMOVATAR" is the coined word that mixed "TOMODACHI" with "avatar". ("TOMODACHI" means "friend" in Japanese.)

TRAVATAR links GPS, so you confirm a position as of a thing of TRAVATAR and can confirm the record of the trip later.

In Japan, call such communication "cross-purposes communication".  

The real-time chat with the mobile is not liked in Japan and it is hard to talk with the person who met for the first time familiarly.

Therefore the systems which can communicate with other person automatically are popular.


Yukaku "Shimabara"

Yukaku "Shimabara" was built in Japanese town "Kyoto-Bakumatsu-Sanjo" of the second life.

"Yukaku" is the Japanese brothel and red light district which there was from the Middle Ages to the World War II.

Because it is a very gorgeous place, please see the sights by all means.

Masks & Special make-up.

I planned it in this way at first "I'll make-up on one's way to sell masks". However, it was reversed. I do make-up for party peoples whole party times (about 5 hours).

In about 5 hours, I do special made-up to 89 people.

For proceeds (almost coins), my wallet became very heavy. By the way, one time of special make-up is 300 yen.

300yen--- about 3.3dollar, 2.24euro, 22.54yuan

I was tired very much. However, I was very happy.
