JFK assassination to be recreated in Second Life

Virtual Reality


I still think the Martians killed President Kennedy. It makes sense if you think about it: maybe they did possess magic bullets capable of zinging around right angles and defying the laws of physics. And if the shots came from space, that would explain why they couldn’t be traced. Really, it makes perfect sense. I’m writing a book about it.

But in the meantime, conspiracy theorists wanting a new spin on the Kennedy assassination can now visit a virtual version of Dealey Plaza in Second Life. Created by US firm Avatar Promotions, it lets you nose around the downtown Dallas district, watch a ghostly-empty version of JFK’s car go by, and even goggle at the infamous Grassy Knoll.

Later this week, the company will be holding a virtual recreation of the assassination itself, which will be invite-only, but until then you can wander around to your heart’s content, looking for Martians clues. Find it by searching for ‘Dealey Plaza’ in your Second Life browser.
