OpenSim – Visit to Ingen Labs – Vehicles, Physics and Varregions

Shin Ingen runs the iTEC Ingen Labs OpenSim/Arriba-based grid (based in Texas) which he uses for development of vehicle scripts (aircraft, helicopters and motor vehicles) and large (Varregion) race tracks with instrumented timing gateways with web-based scoreboard reporting systems (based on Gwyneth Llewelyn’s Second Life/OpenSim user to WordPress connector code).

His web site and open source resources are available at http://blog.ingen-lab.com and his grid can be visited via HyperGrid URL http://ingen-lab.com:8002
