42 Street Art Gangs: PC client screenshots Virtual game world in Oulu3D model Game is played in the Oulu3D model on a PC Players guide their teammates at downtown via instant messaging

43 Street Art Gangs: Snapshots from 3D world

44 Street Art Gangs: Ongoing and upcoming activities Porting of mobile game client onto Windows Mobile and Apple iOS platforms First field testing of Android game client Porting of game world from local Oulu3D model to hosted Oulu3D model will be started when realXtend platform supports web sockets Continue graphical (re)design of UI views

45 Oulu3D has brought the players together! Objectives Open Community-based Comprehensive Realistic Utilization Business Public service R&D Visible landmark for Oulu’s 3D Internet competence realXtend platform
