  • R&B Coffee

    Start-up Electric Sheep is getting enough project work from corporate and nonprofit clients wanting to establish beachheads in the virtual world "Second Life" that it has hired 13 full-time employees.

    The company, for example, created a virtual version of Washington, D.C's R&B Coffee in "Second Life," then displayed it on the wall of the coffee shop at the same time as video of the real-world cafe was streamed into the virtual world.

  • Radio show

    NPR recently hosted a radio show about "Second Life" inside Electric Sheep's tower in the virtual world.
