A great little demo of the Vollee browser for SL on your mobile phone…

It seems Second Life (and presumable soon there will be similar tools for other virtual worlds) is becoming very accessible. I suggest it will be a while before it takes off in Australia – our mobile phone internet systems are still pretty demanding on the wallet at the moment. But hopefully it won’t be too long.

Squeezing a relatively high-end game like Second Life onto your mobile phone without slowing the experience to a crawl is an impressive technical achievement. And this isn’t just some pared-down “check your status” feature, but a real mobile version of the game, one that lets you wander, fly or teleport through the world and chat with your friends. Vollee says it takes advantage of compression and 3G mobile networks to minimize bandwidth requirements.
