Second Life is a virtual, 3D world. It is meant to simulate the experience of a person freely move around a physical environment. Users are able create physical structures and artifacts within the world with which other users can interact. As an example, within Second Life there is a life-sized replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre as it existed in the 17th century. Visitors can move through the theatre as if they were physically there. There is also a replica of historical Paris, an Inca temple and Versailles, to name a few.
And now, after years of preparation, Cupids400 has sponsored the creation of a life-sized replica of the John Guy plantation circa 1612 within the Second Life virtual world. Participants can now explore a fantastically detailled settlement, rendered with authentic structures and characters of that initial settlement 400 years ago. This is one of the most ambitious Second Life virtual environments ever developed and is an invaluable learning and entertainment resource for young and old alike.
