Virtual Dictionary


In any 3D virtual environment, the simple act of rotation is defined as turning any object about an arbitrary axis.

All rotations use one or more of the three primary axis X, Y, and Z. If an object needs to be rotated about two or more of these axii, the order of rotation calculations becomes critical, and due to the computationally expensive calculations, specialised algorithms are brought into play.

"I liked that other place. There was a God there."
This is a whimsical tale of a journey into an as yet uncreated virtual sim world, an Earth in its entirety, which has been created to test the hypothesis of an Earth ?spinning with its axis of rotation in the plane of its ecliptic around the sun, its south pole always pointing at the sun.? The article goes into great depth and hilarity, but ends with a poignant note on the nature of VR worlds, which you would do well to remember.
