Here’s a neat device that can help you communicate between them all.
It’s called RADIONNE.
RADIONNE is a device created by Vadrouille Zepp. Once your avatar wears the device, it allows you communicate via text chat with other folks wearing the device in Second Life or any Opensim-based grid.
There’s a great overview of RADIONNE on Soro Nishi’s blog, including information on how to pick up a copy of it in Second Life.
If you’d like to grab a copy of it to use in Opensim, there’s a copy of it next to the campfire on my region Pathlandia on jokaydiaGRID.
I also placed one on top of the Hypergrid Adventurers Kiosk on the region Core1 on ReactionGrid.
RADIONNE doesn’t currently work across the entire Hypergrid, as each device seems to be programmed to work only on a specific grid. But Vadrouille says he plans to work on a future version that supports folks who jump between grids. This could be very useful for our Hypergrid Adventurers Club.
Thanks to Mal Burns and Wizard Gynoid for helping me learn more about RADIONNE and getting me set up. It’s exciting to see tools developing that help connect people and build communities, no matter where they exist across the growing constellation of virtual worlds.
