HyperGrid Enabled Logo by Kitely The commercial OpenSimulator-based Kitely grid, which implements a market place for virtual worlds good such as avatar clothing and building components, today announced it has enabled the “HyperGrid” to allow teleportation of avatars between their grid and other OpenSim grids which allow hypergrid access. Kitely also proposed a logo which might be used to show that a grid was HyperGrid enabled.
