How Will SL Look in 5 Years?

Pompo Bombacci pointed out this You Tube video of what appears to be a preview of a new Second Life client. Studying the video carefully, it is clear this is what we can expect the Second Life experience to be in the future.

Yes, the future looks bright – expect photo-realistic avatars and builds – with only a few minor issues. Still, it looks like the Lab will have whipped those nagging asset server problems by then. At least everyone’s prim hair stayed rezed.

    i loved how the essence of the sl experience was captured in an in depth and knowing sense. obviously the creators of this film have an intimate knowledge of the way sl currently works.

    I suspect the video depicts French speaking Canadian terrorists.

    I assume that LL sues them for violating the copyright of SL’s unique look and feel.

    The thought about SL in 5 years made me feel ill. SL is really dull but I have to log in to learn the rest.

    Maybe ASC+EU China division has bought LL in 5 years. Shit happens :-)

    Looks like there is no lag. How am I suppose to get the true Second Life experience without finding my avatar walking into the ground for the next twenty meters or so?

    That’s cute. Better then what the headline made me expect to see, which was this:

    404 – File Not Found
