Second Talk brings Skype to Second LifeWednesday, January 24, 2007
VoIP has moved beyond reality into the realm of the virtual world we know as Second Life. Skype Journal announces:
Centric today announced Second Talk, an easy-to-use voice communication system for Second Life. Second Talk "headsets" automatically scan for other Second Talk users nearby, and offer instant voice chat for groups of up to 10 users through Skype, a popular Voice over IP communication platform.This sounds like it may just catch on among Second Lifers. You can pick up your portable virtual headsets here.
While this isn't the first attempt at voice communication within SecondLife, it is probably the first that works with Skype. I know quite a few people who use Skype and SecondLife at the same time (myself included now and then), but not quite like this.
