Realtime RSS in Second Life

By 25 October 2007 No Comments

As part of our continuing work to investigate real time or near real time feeds into Second Life we now have a RSS feed running on a text board within our section of Second Nature Island.

Joel at CASA has written a script to link each prim to a text character allowing any feed to be displayed on a ticker board. At the moment the board is rigged up to the BBC feed, updating every 20 seconds with the latest news on a 24 x 10 display.

At the moment it only supports RSS but we are working on a Atom related version.

If you have Second Life installed you can visit us by clicking here – you will get a red arrow pointing skywards, simply fly up to our section of Second Nature island.
