IDIA Lab Flickr Gettr V4

Flickr Gettr V4 at IDIA lab

Flickr Gettr v4 - 2011

Ok, this was very cool and I played with something like it at SL Burning Life 2 years ago, but this one won't completely work with Phoenix viewer and so I had a fellow visitor put my name in the search box to pull up my Flickr pics that have been tagged with my name so that I could take pictures of my Flickr pictures floating around me. The idea is to search any word you like and then Flickr pics with that tagged name will pop up and surround you. This is a fun thing to see and try.. check it out! direct link here: IDIAFlckrGtrHere.

While there blogging this I met one of the makers, Mencius Watts, who confirmed that at this time Phoenix does not support this project, but the pictures can still be viewed using Phoenix. I checked his profile for the following info. "
Virtual World/Social Media Mashup: Flickr Gettr v4 IDIA's Flickr Gettr connects the social image repository of Flickr to Virtual Worlds and mobile devices. through an interactive 3D and sonic experience - immersing the viewer in a dimensional cloud of user searched imagery.

AM Radio also showed up so I took a few more pics : )

The mobile version will be available after an upcoming announcement. In that version visitors interact with any web enabled mobile device such as an iPhone or Android to control what appears in Second Life.

Media must be enabled. All sound faders should be up - especially voice

The sim note card in parts states:
