    Virtual World SIG presenters Forterra given award by IEEE.

    That’s right the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers … aka. IEEE have given a nod (or award?) to SIG presenter Forterra Systems.

    They were noticed as “one of the five best technologies for 2008″.  Their staff local to Palo Alto, CA have been big supporters of the Virtual World SIG and they have some fantastic virtual world tech.  Their presentation from June 2007 at the SIG really showed what “serious games” can mean.

    It’s breaking news relayed from Virtual Worlds 

    Congrats, Forterra staff on the recognition of your work.
