  Croquet - Uvvy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The objectives of the Croquet project are very ambitious: to give everyone the possibility to create shared and linkable 3D virtual worlds available to all users on a LAN or the Internet.
From the Croquet FAQ: "The Croquet project is an effort to develop a new open source computer operating system built from the ground up to enable deep collaboration between teams of users.
Croquet enables this communication by acting as the equivalent of a broadband conferencing system built on top of a 3D user interface and a peer-to-peer network architecture".

Many croquet players are preparing to fly north to their summer residences, while the rest of us look forward with mixed feelings to a tropical summer in Florida.
But now - in mid-April - the project is solidly on track and the site is abuzz with activity: grading berms, planting trees, constructing sidewalks and roadways, putting down thousands of square feet of sod to stabilize the raw, sculpted earth around the 12 croquet courts and the soon-to-be clubhouse.
The National Croquet Center is negotiating with the World Croquet Federation for the Golf Croquet World Championship to precede the Festival (February 4-10) and overlap its opening day with a finals spectacle for several hundred spectators covered prominently by the press.

 Croquet is coming
Croquet looks and feels like a virtual reality game, but in terms of its development and goals is radically different.
Croquet, on the other hand, is open source software, which means that anyone can access the code or the tools and create, extend, or adapt the virtual space to their own ends.
Croquet is also different from many other educational gaming projects in that it is an attempt to overcome the limitations of traditional online learning environments.

Chuck Steuber, president of the Croquet Foundation of America, has invested a year of solid groundwork and a substantial sum of his own money to bring to life his personal vision of the USCA headquarters of the future - the immediate future, if the donors he seeks are equal to the challenge.
Australia comes closest, but the croquet in Australia is organized around the state organizations (not the national one), and though there are more croquet lawns and clubs in Australia than in any other country, there is no one dominant center with which the sport is identified.
If the contributions aren't sufficient to mount the croquet headquarters project, the donors stand to gain, in fact, an attractive return on the resale of a prime parcel of land that is a long way from the mythic financial swamp of Florida real estate.

The set of the 'bricoleur's' means cannot therefore be defined in terms of a project (which would presuppose besides, that, as in the case of the engineer, there were, at least in theory, as many sets of tools and materials or 'instrumental sets', as there are different kinds of projects).
Croquet, however, is one such development; it integrates high end three dimensional sound and graphics, collaboration technologies, simulations and other tools to create a powerful shared space for the creation, use, and re-use of digital content.
The response to Croquet was very positive, and we've now been invited to attend the Emerging Practices and Learning Technologies in Higher Education NLII Focus Session at Rice University on Mar 8-9, 2005 whose attendees will be exploring strategies for anticipating, evaluating and incorporating new and emerging information technologies on their campuses.

 UW open-source 3D environment tapped for commercial development | WTN
According to Julian Lombardi, assistant director of UW-Madison’s Division of Information Technology and one of Croquet’s lead architects, the system was developed to further “scientific visualization” and move past the confines of simple documents.
Croquet is designed to work in as many fields as possible, though, so 3Dsolve has no plans to limit itself to one area.
Lombardi says that the beta of Croquet should be ready by fall of 2005, and the currently “robust” technology is ready for 3Dsolve to continue its development.
