WIRED Island One in second life.com (htpp://slurl.com/secondlife/WIRED%201/59/36/41) was designated as our demonstration island. We built more than twenty demonstration experiences there from the F-35 fighter to an underwater park. The FVWC entry is an exciting animated, interactive classroom demonstrating the potential for virtual worlds as training/orientation and public relations sites for major industries.
