Nikolay Suslov has just made it possible for Seaside 2.9 and Comet to control replicated islands in Croquet/Cobalt. This means that multiple users can be allowed to interact with virtual world content using a web browser in real-time. Through this work, content within virtual worlds can be made to change based on inputs originating from devices such as laptop computers, netbooks, PDAs, and even cellphones - basically any device that runs a web browser. This is an important step in making the content and attributes of virtual spaces reflect the state of a web-based social network or the actions of those unable to deploy OpenGL-based virtual worlds.
