A virtual prototype is a prototype design of a physical object, which is not just surface mapped, but exists in its entirety, complete with all moving parts, and behaves exactly as the physical counterpart should. Virtual prototyping, is the process of creating them.

This book is dedicated to both virtual reality and augmented reality, as in how both apply to the manufacturing process. Everything from 3D visualisation and pre-manufacture prototyping to 3D printers and revolutionising the manufacture process.
The age of cheap, home fabrication and rapid prototyping WITHOUT dedicated facilities, may finally be dawning upon us. A cheap, self-assembly unit, costing little more than a new PC, has been developed by a group of US researchers, which actually has superior capabilities to many high-end commercial fabricators.
The age of cheap, home fabrication and rapid prototyping without any requirement for dedicated facilities, may finally be dawning upon us. A cheap, self-assembly unit, costing little more than a new PC, was developed at the very start of 2007. Here, we chart its progress, and see if the revolution is truly revolutionary.
Yes, this is a game design book, rather than a simulation design book. However, the disconnect between simulations and games technology wise, does not really exist.
Essentially this book is an updated version of Game Design Workshop: Designing, Prototyping, & Playtesting Games, for which the author of this book was one of the authors of the previous book.
Julian Dibbell, freelance writer, and author of ?A Tiny Life? and other works chronicling the massive, disruptive impact of virtual lives on both the physical and the virtual. He tried a little experiment: was it possible to make more money from his forays into the virtual, buying and selling virtual items, than he makes as a successful writer?

A lovely escapist magazine article about why the ?virtual? in virtual worlds and virtual environments, has outlived its usefulness, and is doing more harm than good, to the industry.
News from the 18th of August 2005, the first recorded case of a man arrested for mugging a great many people in a virtual world - and then taking their virtual goods, and selling them wholesale on an auction website. Industrial grade mugging - in a virtual world.
Industry news, from 01-04-2005. Hands up who saw this one coming? That?s right, you can all put your hands down now. Virtual property, existing only in a database server, has long been a hot topic in virtual reality, as to who actually owns it. Now, this case has reached a new level, with the murder of a man accused of stealing a virtual sword.
