Near-real Clinical Experience in Second Life

I’ve recently come across the island of the University of Auckland, New Zealand in Second Life where they try to create a medical simulation.

This simulation is being constructed to explore the potential of virtual worlds to offer near-real clinical and human experiences for medical training.

Most of the “build” to date has been focused on the physical structures and equipment, however continued work will be to animate equipment and avatars to simulate real-life contingencies.
