Second Life (http://secondlife.com) has certainly changed since I visited last a few months ago. When I taught EDMT 592 (Virtual Worlds and Social Networking in Education) we visited a virtual model of the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
As an aside, do I really need to write “virtual” or “model” any more when talking about Second Life (SL)? It seems redundant.
This evening I attended the premiere of the newly updated run of Twelfth Night in sLiterary’s own Globe Theatre. The SLURL for the theatre is http://slurl.com/secondlife/sLiterary/3/10/26.
According to the coordinator for the production, Ina Centaur:
For Twelfth Night, Act 2, our three technological innovations include the usage of physics, moving automatons, and visual illusion on the virtual stage. You’ll see physics on-stage, in both built-in and scripted forms in our apple catches in Scene 3, and wilting rose motif in Scene 4 and, in the crawlspace of Scene 3, you’d see prim-based automaton actors in the form of rats!
