Diving into Secondlife and ‘The Forbidden City’

The Israel Internet Association is holding its November meetup today at IBM HQ, with an interesting session about virtual worlds – diving into Secondlife and a guided virtual tour of The Forbidden City, IBM and China’s Palace Museum 3-year long project. The meeting will start at 17:00, networking at 16:30. Feel free to RSVP at facebook event page.

About The Forbidden City:

The Forbidden City: Beyond Space and Time is a partnership between IBM and the Palace Museum in Beijing, China. For more than five hundred years, the Ming and Qing emperors ruled China from the palaces of the Forbidden City. The art and architectural treasures from this period are the cultural heart of modern China.

The principal goal of the project is to provide the means for a worldwide audience to celebrate and explore Chinese culture and history. As an IBM Corporate Citizenship project, the project marries world-class subject matter with world-class technology innovation. It is a premiere showcase of IBM’s leadership in virtual worlds and cultural preservation.

The Forbidden City: Beyond Space and Time is the world’s first online virtual world dedicated to a country’s cultural heritage. This is presented as a three-dimensional replica of the square-kilometer palace grounds called The Virtual Forbidden City.
