Have you ever secretly wished that you could tell a "computer" terminal in the Virtual World what you wanted, and it gave it to you? Or perhaps you have seen Star Trek role play and wished the props were a bit more interactive. UFSGrid is now taking bold steps toward generating a new "Computer Core Module" intended to give some great new life to some awesome looking, but dull prim props you might have seen before. The idea is to allow characters a Trek themed role play experience with more interactivity which you might come to expect from treknology, as it is fondly known. This module will allow a user to state requests to the appropriate computer terminals such as "Computer locate Captain Trekker", and it would then reply in text with the location of that person if they existed in the computer's database, and no conditions are preventing the computer from locating the character such as the ships internal sensors are offline..Read the full press release here.
