CSI:NY is integrating into the world of Second Life on Wednesday, October 24!
According to an article by TechCrunch author, Duncan Riley, the upcoming episode of this already popular show should persuade millions of new people to check out Second Life. CBS has set up several inworld activities allowing users to play forensic games, win virtual prizes, and solve the murder in the episode itself (with the conclusion not airing until next year). A link on the CBS website will point viewers to their options.
A preview of the video is here.
I am excited for this type of technology integration. Imagine how thrilled all those forensic junkies (I prefer CSI:Las Vegas myself) will be to actually interact with the show to “solve” the crime. The potential for a wonderful learning experience is amazing.
Maybe I’ll see you there!
