Second Life takes you to the moon (almost)

Tucked away on one side of the Space Frontier Sandbox in Second Life is a reproduction Saturn V , apparently to scale, at rest on the launch-pad and serviced by the customary gantry. The individual pieces are made by different Second Life users, but the combined work is that of one Wicked Quasimod...

Mixed reality Melbourne: Seventeen Unsung Songs

It's one of those little Melbourne bars, not so much wider than the bar that runs much of the length of it, with some seating near the front for the smokers (who are nearly out in the cold, literally), and a smaller lounge area in the back with a tiny little stage. It's poorly lit (too dark for cle...

Cruise on a luxury liner: The SS Galaxy

The SS Galaxy is impressive. Crossing three simulators and on the order of 600 metres long, it is the single largest structure that we are aware of in Second Life. (If there's something larger than the SS Galaxy, by all means let us know!) We took a trip to the SS Galaxy this week, and crawled ove...

Have a picnic in a living world

Where can you go to see a sea dragon, read art books, have your fortune told, and play music, all in the one spot? Well, Svarga in Second Life certainly has all of this. And that's not all you can do in this wonderful simulation. The most wonderful things about Svarga don't show on the surface. Yo...

Dubai Women's College

Dubai Women's College is, as far as we can tell, the first educational institution in the Middle East to open a campus in Second Life (are we wrong? There's a lot of educational institutions with setups and sites on the grid). The island, Dubai Women's College, isn't, as yet, a whole lot to write ...
