Streaming Radio (2007)
The Pathe-Marconi Streaming Radio
is a Second Life interface to the Locus
Sonus Streaming Project.
The interface takes the form of a vintage radio set in an environment
similar to the one employed in When Airwaves Swing.
The radio is flanked by vintage radio manuals, which give directions
on the radio's use. When an avatar touches the radio, a dialog
box opens, displaying the available streams. When a selection
is made, the ambient sound in the local environment is replaced
by that of the chosen real-life stream. The streams are real-time
and represent many places around the world.
If you have Second Life installed,
