3Dcamp Hits Limerick On May 24th

3DcampJames Corbett and Gabriela Avram are some of the names behind 3Dcamp, the next in a line of great themed BarCamp events to hit the country, and it’s taking place in the University of Limerick on Saturday May 24th.

The day will focus on

  • Virtual worlds (Second Life, the Metaverse)
  • Mirror worlds (Google Earth and Virtual Earth)
  • Mapping mashups
  • GPS
  • Location based Services (LBSs)
  • Haptics (eg. Wiimote hacks)
  • 3D modelling (Blender, Sketchup) and all things 3D.
  • …and more besides.

Partly due to running around like a headless chicken on the day of CreativeCamp (well, not completely headless, but I think when you’re involved in the organising of an event there’s an element of ‘work mode’ on the day moreso than ‘pure enjoyment’ mode) I missed out on a number of talks that I know are going to crop up at 3Dcamp.

So it pains me to say that while I can look forward to 3Dcamp happening and to the coverage of the day online, I won’t get within 50 miles of Limerick on the 24th of May due my summer gigging schedule (attending in Dublin on the 23rd, playing in Ballina, Mayo, on the 24th).

The day runs from 10am to 6pm with talks and sessions taking place in the University’s Engineering Research Building. For the moment, you can visit the University of Limerick site for directions or head straight over to the 3Dcamp blog and register for free.
