Technical and legal information:
This website, we call in.futurelab [and the 3D-world behind] is monitored by the non-profit trust ‘Stiftung Kunstinformatik‘ [Programmed Art Foundation] located in ‘Haus der Stiftung’ Munich, Germany. The server for the 3D-world is located in Dresden, capital city of the Free State of Saxony, Germany.
Reiner Schneeberger was set in place by the trust commitee as the managing director of the foundation. More about the legal aspects you find at the site kunstinformatik.de. There you find also the standing rules [Satzung].
Using the Hypergrid.net-Visitor-Viewer no data of your visit will be collected and stored. By using this viewer you go in futurelab in the shape of an ‘eye’. You cant build with this viewer and you cant upload data. The makers of ‘The Hypergrid.net’ viewers are Reiner Schneeberger, Daniel Jung and Mathias Jacob. Reiner Schneeberger was member of the German delegation for Greece 2011 to present the 1st version of the viewer [invited by Federal Minister of Economics and Technology Dr. Philipp Rösler]. Daniel Jung has a degree in informatics and is currently working on his thesis “Reading brainwaves for navigation in virtual environments and prospects for HR“. Mathias Jacob is co-founder of Metropolis [hypergrid.org], the leading German and English speaking open 3D grid.
In case you use a third party viewer, like Hippo, Singularity, SpontON3D, Imprudence …, you do it on the conditions of the makers of these viewers. Most of them are also doing a fine job, but ‘Stiftung Kunstinformatik’ cant ensure that no data will be collected by these viewers. We will assign you a password in case you want to log in to futurelab with a third-party viewer. Same procedure happens in case you are invited to build in one of the 3D-worlds guided by ‘Stiftung Kunstinformatik’, like the Primexplorer project.
Following communication methods are offered: phone, fax, skype, ICQ, dedicated chat. [Instead of inworld voice we use Skype.] E-mail for in.futurelab is info(at)futurelab.in
