Aquaman in Second Life

F.O.A.M.er Joe Huber sent me these shots of his Second Life version of Aquaman. Knowing virtually nothing about Second Life, I'll let Joe explain what we're looking at:

For my Master's degree, we are required to play and participate in a gaming program called Second Life. It's actually pretty fun, and we've even begun to film some machinima films inside the platform. Several people sell items inside the game, and as you can imagine, Aquaman is there. I purchased the Aquaman skin for my avatar, and I've taken a few screen shots which I've attached to this message.

What's special about this skin is that it comes with a HUD that lets you say some key phrases taken from the JL cartoon. Avatars have the choice of walking in world, or flying to destinations. When in water environments, the Aquaman skin is programmed to swim."

I love it--can a Second Life Mera be far behind? Thanks Joe!

That skin reminds me of the World of Warcraft Aquaman in the I Am Murloc video.

Have you done that yet?
