While exploring some Second Life landmarks and blog posts that I had scavenged off of the Educators list while trapped in a 777 this past Friday, I visited a very interesting sim called Knightsbridge. This is a recreation of a section of London, complete with working double-decker buses and a functioning tube station! I chatted with a few residents and even gave a ride or two in my hovercraft.
I also found a very convincing Coldwell Banker office, selling real-life property in Spain. I will have to show this to my wife, who’s been trying to figure out a way to integrate Second Life into her marketing activities. The office is a marketing vehicle for the Sierra Cortinas resort.
Here are some pictures of the Coldwell Banker office (SLURL):
A very interesting blend of the real and the virtual.
