  • The purpose of this study is to show typology of virtual world and to look out how virtual world develops especially in Korea. As paradigm changes, the scientific virtual reality and world wide web are absorbed into 3-D virtual world in Metaverse. The metaverse is the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space. There are two categories of virtual world, the Ludic Virtual World which is oriented from games like MMORPGs and the Social Virtual World which is oriented from network communication system. Compared to North America and Europe, the Ludic Virtual World and game society grow and develop quickly in Korea. It's because Korean users prefer the online environment where millions of people live out a collective fantasy existence.

  • In this paper we interface Tangible Devices (i.e. Haptic Devices) for 3D Virtual World based on MPEG-RoSE syntax. We called it Virtual World and Real World Interface (VRI). The VRI Technology project intends to provide virtual world information to real world and tangible experience to user of virtual world through tangible devices.

  • The virtual world is a cyber gaming space where a player interacts with others through their avatars. It is now mainly developed in foreign countries including USA, Canada, and Europe and many experts say that the market capacity of virtual world will be continually expanded in worldwide. The virtual world will mostly be made such that a user accesses the world for free and pays for in-game activities. But it is hardly that we find the effective methodology of payment system for such virtual world due to its' short development history. In the case of Korea, various payment methods of selling in-game assets have been tested in online games. The paper propose an effective revenue model for social virtual world focused on selling in-game assets. The guideline of the proposed revenue model will be expected to contribute creating revenue focused on selling in-game assets, effectively for social virtual world.

  • There has been a growing interest and enthusiasm for the application of virtual worlds in learning and training. This research proposes a design framework of a virtual world-based learning environment that integrates two unique features of the virtual world technology, immersion and interactivity, with an instructional strategy that promotes self-regulatory learning. We demonstrate the usefulness and assess the effectiveness of our design in the context of information security learning. In particular, the information security learning module implemented in Second Life was incorporated into an Introduction to Information Security course. Data from pre- and post- learning surveys were used to evaluate the effectiveness of the learning module. Overall, the results strongly suggest that the virtual world-based learning environment enhances information security learning, thus supporting the effectiveness of the proposed design framework. Additional results suggest that learner traits have an important influence on learning outcomes through perceived enjoyment. The study offers useful design and implementation guidelines for organizations and universities to develop a virtual world-based learning environment. It also represents an initial step towards the design and explanation theories of virtual world-based learning environments.

  • In this paper, we present a model of a virtual world that incorporates different time periods, in contrast to current popular virtual worlds like Second Life, to utilize the digital space fully. The construction of a virtual world in which we include historical information in the virtual life simulation utilizing the world map and current space information is proposed. The reason for incorporating time is that the virtual world varies according to the politics, economics, society, and culture of a particular time period, so users are able to play in a distinct virtual world as a resident and make their communities of their own free will. Like the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, the model proposed in this paper is a project designed to be maintained by and expanded through the interactivity of users, but unlike Wikipedia, users of this virtual world will be able to live and interact in a world of their own creation in addition to contributing real information.

  • Online game is the most popular representative example of the fast growing virtual world. Also, influence of interaction between virtual and real world is getting greater, and much discussion about virtual world and economy. However, it is often overlooked that the types of virtual economy can be very diverse depending on conditions of social and legal environment and policies of companies. Therefore, the influence of interactions between virtual world and real world is not managed by government and companies properly enough. We propose that virtual world is a system which has six types of agents and five types of transactions. Then there are twenty-four combinations, and we illustrated four typical combinations among them to explain practical applications of our model. The purpose of our categorization is not only to help to understand characteristics but also to provide insights for management and improvement for virtual worlds.

  • The fashion in the virtual world is emerging as a new genre. Gammer in virtual community shares the avatars and space for their activities and for flourishing their virtual lives, they start to demand indispensable daily items. The gammer's demands lead to the concept of second life in the virtual world which was introduced in 2003. The trading business system is realized at the virtual world with various daily items, developed by individual programmers, through the virtual money, which may converted into real money. Particularly, fashion industry's inherent nature of snagging on-line trading is no more, now, set to ready in the virtual world let alone various daily virtual items developed by individual programmers. The purpose of this study is, focused on the virtual second life, to introduce the model of fashion business in virtual world and overall informations regarding second life business systems so as to provide the fundamental data for opening the web.3.0 era. Further various fashion items in the virtual world, developed by individual programers, will be another boost for shaping another virtual fashion business genre.

  • The purpose of this study was to understand the relationship between one's social-self image and Online Avatar image. Influence of these virtual images on one's attitude toward real world and commitment to the virtual world was examined. In addition, the gender difference was examined. A structural equation model with social self image as exogenous variable and influence of Avatar as endogenous variable was designed. Real and ideal Avatar images were the mediating variable in the model. Survey questionnaire was developed and data from 425 respondents were analyzed. Results indicated that the conceptual model was a good fit to the data. Respondents who perceived their social self-images importantly were likely to have real images of Avatars. Ideal image and real image had significant on commitment to virtual world and attitudes toward the real world. For male respondents, social self image had stronger influence on real image of Avatar and ideal image had stronger influence on commitment to virtual world than female respondents.

  • The concept of connector is introduced as mediator between virtual environment and real environment. A connector has interest on usefulness in real world while previous interfaces of virtual reality system have focus on virtual world. A functional connector among connectors gives solution if disorientation problem in virtual environment and helps user to take out the knowledge experienced through virtual reality system in real environment. An example of a functional connector is designed and developed. Evaluation of designed and developed. Evaluation of connector will be executed later.
