Project Description

The QuickSilver project was created by The Social Logic Institute for DARPA. QuickSilver is a fully interactive 3D world in which different communication and organizational patterns test the abilities of a group to accomplish an objective (hide-and-seek.) Noventum™ helped with many of the ancillary software development tasks required to aid in making this virtual world function. Those  tasks included:

  • TeamSpeak server and channel configuration to allow for voice chatting
  • Registration and scheduling software created to make sure that the right number of people were in a game at the right time (cron, PHP, Python, MySQL)
  • Automatically closing off registration options as the games filled up (PHP, MySQL)
  • Creating instructions to allow for game participants to know what was going to happen
  • General web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, MySQL)
