Second Life Competitor

It looks like there is a new competitor for second Life to worry about. The University of California at San Diego announced recently that one of its professors is working on creating a new virtual world environment that will offer more flexibility than Second Life. An article on the subject says that:

  • The center will use a new hybrid-computing platform developed by IBM. Sheldon Brown, a professor of visual arts at the university who is also the director of the new center, said artists working with simulations have been limited by the computing technologies available. The new IBM platform, Mr. Brown said, offers an increased level of flexibility and power that will give artists more freedom.
