Microsoft adds Caligari to Virtual Earth team

Caligari logoMicrosoft has just announced that they have added Caligari, makers of the 3D modeling software trueSpace, to their to their Virtual Earth team.

Plans for implementing Caligari into Virtual Earth have not been revealed, but it certainly has a lot of potential.  One item that I’ve seen mentioned a few times already is the possiblity of a “Second Life” type of feature, or perhaps just another way to put high-quality 3D into the globe.  In any case, it should only mean more good stuff for us to enjoy!
