Cartoon wallpaper. There are two senses of cartoon here. The caricature of the
marionette-manikin and the animation for the mobile phone (I say this to get
my defense in first).
With SoapBox what you see is the inside of a soap box - a crate with some
old odds and ends inside. The mobile phone gives you a novel interface to
configure, while giving some insight into how *very* configurable ROOMS can be.
You will get best results out of the graphics for this world if you have ROOMS
rendering at 800x600 or better (See the graphics tab under ROOMS Setup and Start).
But, as with with all ROOMS worlds, you can run it at the screen size of your
choice, and the render area is controllable independently.
Everything you see was created with ROOMS Creator and World Viewer, plus a free image from NASA,
one 800x600 digital camera, plus irfanview for a bit of postprocessing. And time?
Well, somewhere between 60 and 80 hours, including blind alleys (expect to throw
away a lot of stuff when creating!!!).
Let me know via the user comments whether you want to see more of these confined
spaces with perhaps more detail, or extended space where the interest may be more
in the shape and extent of the space itself.
[If you have not downloaded one of these ROOMS worlds before, the idea is
first, here is an interesting space into which to drag and organize Windows
icons, and second here is an interesting space to look at - at least until
the next world gets published (two weeks from now)]
