James Kinross has given an interview to the NextMed: Design for WellBeing Conference. Read their blog posting to learn the answer to this question and others: How realistic can objects and operating rooms be in Second Life?
The training facility houses a number of our research projects and is currently private. As it is in the SciLands we have given access to other island owners, and we intend to open it to the public once our pilot studies are completed. We recently gave a tour to attendees of the American Medical Informatics Association’s annual conference in Washington. If you are interested in surgical simulation join the Second Health notification list or group in Second Life and we will notify you when the next tours are being held. If you have not yet used Second Life visit the Second Health website to discover how to go about it.
