I-Room Tour on VCE Region in Second Life 10-Mar-2010

A simplified design of I-Room has been moved from its original location on the VCE region in Second Life onto OpenVCE group space on the US Army run MOSES OpenSim grid.  It is available both in a location on the main OpenVCE_00 region just off the Central Plaza, and across from the original more complex I-Room, and for experimentation it is also on a radically simplified region OpenVCE_03 on MOSES.
