Second Life walkie talkie walks

Second Life walkie talkie walks is a project for the Conflux Festival 2007

Simultaneous walking tours for Second Life avatars and real people, connected to each other using a pair of walkie talkies. One operating from Second Life, the other running on an internet enabled mobile phone.

Second Life residents can pick up an in-world walkie talkie at the 0031 area in Second Life

Real people can check out the availability of activated virtual walkie talkies and by surfing to slwalkietalkie.com on their mobile phone.

The project is initiated and carried out by Sander Veenhof, a multi-media artist from the Netherlands with a fascination for the cross-over between the virtual and the real.
