The Abyss Observatory is a museum of Earth System Science, Marine Life and Undersea Technology created in Second Life, currently supported by JAMSTEC as a test bed of remotely collaboration and 3D visualization to create new scientific value. First, Second Life is remarkable platform for remotely, interdisciplinary and international collaboration....
Conference Paper

Authors introduced an example of construction of cross-disciplinary collaboration platform for study of interaction between Art and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) using MMORPG (Massively Multi-player Online Role-Playing Game) technology. The platform is provided to education based on Moodle, Constructivism, STEAM movement,...
Conference Paper

At first, we’ll have several observations and experiments to discover physical laws in SL, such as secrets of SL materials and SL geography and astronomy. Subsequently, I’ll talk about how to make a museum as examples of visualization of relations and contexts, including collaboration with creators and Guidelines of Navigation/ Wayfinding in SL mus...
Presentation
The scientific research about coastal ecosystems and their importance to humanity is both solidly founded and ongoing. Scientists share the facts widely. Yet human activity is destroying these coastal ecologies and marine habitats, and officials with authority to protect these environments significantly undervalue them by law and policy. Knowing th...

With Second Life (SL) and OpenSim Grids, if you have some motivation and some skills, you can make your own museum or Art Museum. It is also superior to those in the real world. Plenty museums have already been built. Even fields and the towns can be a museum / art museum as a place of distance education. I’ll write how to build a museum separatel...

comet Morigi and I built The Modern Museum as a collaboration platform for finding cross-disciplinary relations in modern history, inspired by the synchronicity of the birth years of Picasso, Einstein and Stravinsky. They were the initiators of strange physics, strange paintings, and strange music. We think there is a reason. To prove it, we arrang...

It is believed that Jules Verne made a rough arrangement of Nautilus when he wrote "20,000 leagues Under the Sea". many researchers tried to reconstruct the arrangement but didn't success enough due to several deviations in the novel. Yan, motoko Moonwall and Aley (Arcadia Ashylum) reconstructed Nautilus based on both the novel and feasible design...

Global warming is having a remarkable effect on developing countries. These countries depend on agriculture which is fragile in extreme weather, and this damage becomes the cause of poverty. 17 new sustainable development goals from the United Nations are largely related to disasters, especially in developing countries. Technology development show...

This museum looks an Art history museum. It is almost true, but there are not only paintings but also Architectures, novels, scientific discoveries, industrial inventions, and social developments. I hope this museum becomes a collaboration platform for finding cross-disciplinary relations in Human History. Visualization can reduce barriers derived...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The speaker will talk about how to visualize scientific knowledge and provide to society or educational use. Second Life provide us object oriented intuitive 3D modeling method which enable us to express own idea by ourselves, and enable us to collaborate inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary beyond distance and time zone difference. On the ot...

"Abyss Observatory" is an international museum/ aquarium of Earth science, undersea technology and also sense of wonder about the misteries of Earth & Life in multi-user 3D environment Second Life (SL) and Japan Open Grid (JOGrid) of OpenSim The Abyss was privately founded by 3 Japanese and a US creator of closed "the Abyss Museum of Ocean Science", and opened on Jan 28, 2010 using one third of the NOAA's SIM "Second Earth 3 (SE3)", supported by SciLands. SE3 was succeeded by Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) from NOAA on April, 2011. After closing of SE3 on June, 2015, the Abyss continues to develope Earth, Ocean and Life science exhibits and cross-desciplinary collaboration in SL and JOGrid with Tokyo University of Information Sciences (TUIS), National Institute of Education, Singapore (NIE), ScienceCircle Foundation and many volunteer creators. http://jogrid.net/abyss/abyss.htm

Natalie Nussli and Kevin Oh published 6 papers and Greg Perrier’s 2 documents about Teacher Training for education in Virtual World like Second life and OpenSim Grids. I propose to install these idea to SC land (“The Science Circle”) in Second Life.
