The VRML Architecture Group has selected Moving Worlds, the language pioneered by Silicon Graphics Inc, as the specification for Version Two of the Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML) for use on the Web (CI 2886). The next generation of VRML is expected to enable users to act much more naturally within virtual worlds than is currently possible, adding properties such as objects that can be picked up and moved. Moving Worlds was put forward by a group of 56 firms, including SGI, Netscape Communications Corp, Adobe Systems Inc, Sega Enterprises Ltd and IBM Corp.
