GridExperience is a 3D virtual reality world composed of many different regions. Each region is unique offering a different experience for the user to enjoy. Experiences as varied as exploring Ancient Rome to walking the decks of the starship Enterprise are available on the seperate regions. GridExperience is running on the OpenSimulator software platform which is a lot like Second-Life™. The biggest difference between OpenSimulator and Second-Life™ is the ability for the user to travel to other grids. Hundreds of grids throughout the world are loosely interconnected into what is referred to as the hypergrid. Users can travel the hypergrid through a method called teleporting. On the hypergrid you can meet new people, explore amazing places, and participate in special events. On GridExpeience we offer a wide range of things to do such as horseback riding through an enchanted forest, racing speedboats on a huge water region, piloting a jet-ski around a tropical island, driving a race-car on a challenging track, flying a helicopter, taking a hot-air balloon ride, listening to live music, dancing as a DJ spins your favorite tunes, racing speeders on the planet Endor, and much more. The range of things that you will find to do on GridExperience and on the Hypergrid is truly amazing.
