Second life launched in 2003 was expected to be as big as windows some day, but people lost interest in it. Though the businesses associated with it still collect revenue of around $50 million the previous year but the target anticipated was never achieved.
Linden Labs the maker of Second Life has erudite insights of what it takes for the virtual world to be successful. Ebby Altberg CEO at Linden Labs said, “We are privileged to have a decade of experience concerning what people want from the digital world”. With the new project, Sansar from Linden Labs will allow any user with or without tech knowledge can build their own virtual reality content.
Linden Labs are intended to build the Massive Online platform with their project Sansar. The platform will be open for a limited number of people initially but the company will make it available for the rest of the world by next year. Unlike the Second life, the user doesn’t have to visit the particular page.
In Sansar, one can create a model of a Lab and put it online for others to rent. The project will support a verity of 3-D file formats such as .fbx and .obj while scripting will be done with C#.
