Virtual Worlds Week: CSI:NY going live in Second Life

Virtual Reality

The latest example of the crossover between virtual worlds and television comes in a new project around forensic investigation show CSI:NY, thanks to a partnership between CBS and Second Life.

This Wednesday, an episode of the show will air in which the CSI team end up chasing a killer’s avatar in Second Life. Once the show’s finished, fans will be able to explore a dedicated CSI:NY zone within Second Life, playing mini-games and doing some detection of their own.

Watch the video above to see a preview of the virtual CSI:NY. Now, can someone do a similar thing for The Bill here in the UK?
