3D places in a box.  Scenes for immersion.

  • Role playing
  • Storytelling in the scene
  • Language learning.  See, name, talk about. 
  • Video production
  • Improvisation practice.  Support your imagination
  • Writing.  Use the scene for ideas 

A few of the scenes

  • Diner
  • Hospital
  • Police station
  • Rope bridge
  • Sheriff's office
  • Space ship, command deck
  • Treasure chamber
  • Slow boat to china
  • Western town, main street
  • Train in a western scene
  • and lots more

Get 'em here for Second Life

She is refusing treatment!
Police station
You are under arrest.  Breaking into a jail is a felony.  
  • Rezz 'em on your land.
  • Rezz 'em in a sandbox.
  • Rezz 'em  on group land (if you have rezz rights).
Rope bridge
This is the tourist attraction?  
Sheriff's office
Looking for the sheriff?  Sorry, she is not in right now.  Target practice.

Space ship, command deck
Captain, I have a personal matter to discuss..
Sorry, I can't see you now.
Treasure chamber
All I found here was a credit card.
Old freighter 
Mr. Moto?  What is he doing here?  
Western town, main street
Sorry, podner.  This is Starbuck's. All we sell is coffee.    
Train in a western scene
Sorry, honey, but we're out of steam.  We'll just have to park here for a while.  But let's get comfortable and make the best of it.
