After a few years of wandering around in other open-source projects like Vircadia and ROS2, I’ve come back to do some work on Basil and its components.
Why revisit? With the “metaverse” becoming A Thing, I really felt the idea of a viewer that is separate from world logic is more important than ever.
Also, since I’m a virtual world old timer (been doing this stuff for over 20 years), I have the nagging feeling that virtual worlds are a nitch. A big nitch for sure – it will create billion dollar companies and industries. But augmented reality is where the real life changing application will happen. Think how the touch-screen, graphical, cell phone has changed the world.
Thus, the Basil architecture is again important.
