Opensim "body" required for virtual patient system

Post by Maggs Freenote » Thu Jan 17, 2013 9:26 am

Hi all,

I am trying to get my hands on a male / female "body" to use in an Opensim region for a virtual patient system we are building. If you have one please let me know as soon as possible and thanks.

You're not very specific about requirements (posable?) but here are some thoughts:

1. Use an NPC -- reasonably straightforward to dress/pose if a little "fragile" perhaps
2. Use a mesh from one of the repositories
3. ... product=33 (cheap though it's harder than you might think to assemble something convincing).
4. Todd Borst in SL has a sculpt-based copy/trans static greeter (he sells the animated version); I've seen it lots of places but have no idea whether use outside SL is licensed.

The British Council sponsored an SL kit based on the n00b by Art Laxness but I'm pretty sure that can't legally be exported.

I'm guessing that medical projects must have solved this problem so you need to track them down. If there's nobody here, you could try ...

If you find a good solution, please post here.

Best wishes

That reminds me of the Preview Project at St Georges Island in SL.

My contact there was Luke (SL Lucas Nathansohn), at St Georges Hospital, and from the current preview page Luke and Emily are both on G+.
I'm pretty sure Luke was on LinkedIn as well. He's a technical Developer at St Georges University.

If you're not already familiar with Preview, I have a bit more background on that, and some of the materials.
I think I have the framework for the patient with contact nodes, but not the actual body, of which there were several.

Preview was a public funded JISC project, and so the content is supposed to be freely available, except where there were any existing IP restrictions.
