i had an offer, well more of a demand sent to me last year. someone wanted to keep me as their doll, keep me housebound and only let me interact with the world through second life. well all the 'demanding' didn't go down to well and the posturing of the guy was just so off i never replied.
the idea of being trapped in a doll case and only interacting through Second Life is a curious one and has if nothing else certain resonances with the film The Matrix.
i was somewhat surprised when i was sent two links. the first is what looks to be a mock up of a possible immersive system you walk into from i-cocoon
seems to be very much developed for arcades and Disneylands of the world. how long before something like this gets to made and then variations for the home? who knows.
the other link i've totally misplaced so if you were the one who sent it in, please resend. essentially it was a video camera / facial mapping system in real time. so instead of your webcam image, it would be your fully photo realistic avatar communicating on screen wether its video or Second Life.
now back to the offer.
i guess its down to the approach and the intent. most people don't understand that. being spanked as one example is humiliating, painful and abusive. if done in the right situation and with the right person then its something totally different. something thrilling and erotic. the guy who sent me that demand really doesn't get it.
