Second Life MP3 Player
I read on Mashable about this new Second Life gizmo thingie from Cruxy. It’s meant to be like an in-game mp3 player (not really: after the discussion in the comments, I see that the metaphor of a remote control is more appropriate). Your Second Life avatar wears it and it streams music based on an xspf playlist. The one limitation, which is kind of major in my opinion, is that you have to own the land you’re on to hear the music. Oops! This is a current limitation of Second Life, which I hope they get rid of soon, because it makes a device like this so much less excellent than it could be.
I am not a landowner in Second Life, so I can’t hear if it works or not, but I’ve set up a playlist you can use if you want to try it out. Just go to this page on Cruxy to have the player sent to you – enter your avatar name and use this link for the playlist: http://www.jonathancoulton.com/playlists/cruxy.xpsf.
Keep on rockin in the virtual world…
