Some more (and final photos) of the 72 hour build-a-thon

This morning the event came to an end and Versu and all the people involved finally got to rest. Congratulations to everybody, it was a cool event. Of course it was mainly a marketing event it seems but I think it’s a push in more mixed reality events and it’s differently at least from just streaming video back and forth as it’s usually has been done with former events. And this event was actually completely build around Second Life and mostly happening in there (or to the same parts maybe).

So let’s hope for some more aristic event utilizing mixed reality even better and maybe without the handicap of being a marketing effort (not said that companies might be sponsors of that of course).

Ok, so here’s some final photos of the event and some video footage will come shortly, too.
