Technology has grow to the point that we could fully be immersed into our computer experience. It would be a part of our every waking moment. This is where Augmented Reality, 3D and Immersive Technologies moved the every day person from using their computers to allowing computers to immerse themselves in our very existence.
Hell Yeah super cool, Science Fiction kind of stuff. Check out the video below:
I tend to write about new technologies because I have a fascination with what is going to happen in technology moving forward. In fact I am still waiting for a lot of the technologies that were suppose to happen. Like the Flying cars on the Jetsons. What The HECK on that…ummm Still WAITING.
So I like to try to find out and experience new technologies if at all possible. One of the technologies that I feel strongly will be an essential part of forward moving technologies are Virtual Worlds. As more and more people become accustomed to 3D Technologies the acceptance of virtual worlds will grow. I’ve been involved with The Virtual World Second Life for over 2 years now.
I believe moving forward more and more businesses will have Second Life Locations. I visited Kelly Services, Nokia and even the Oval Office on Second Life. As people become use to the idea of immersing themselves in technology by way of avatar more people and companies will venture on to Second Life and other virtual worlds. Check out some of the cool real life places that you can visit on Second Life
Anise Smith Marketing is fully on board with Virtual World Integration. So instead of JUST creating a website for our new Anise Smith Marketing Products Division we went with Virtual World Integration as well.

Virtual World integration involves duplication of your company within a virtual world. There are varying degrees in which to do this, you can duplicate a web presence only, go with a full duplication of your brick and mortal location or go with something in between. Anise Smith Marketing went with web duplication as we are an online business only. Take a look at our walk through video below.
I am a lover of Virtual Worlds and have been since attending Grad School, where we had an entire class held on Second Life. I signed up a few months before the return to school and honestly thought it was quite weird. However after the New Media Marketing Class at Full Sail University’s in the Internet Marketing Degree program, I thought the entire concept of a virtual world ROCKED. I mean REALLY RAWKED spelled in the super cool but incorrect way.
I have been reading more and more about the Semantic Web and the Future of the Internet and it leads me to believe that virtual worlds are on the upward swing and that technology is moving toward embracing the concept of virtual worlds. We are currently moving toward the end of Web 2.0 and toward WEB 3.0, which is suppose to allow us to immerse ourselves more into the technology of the Internet, this is virtual world technology.
After falling falling in love with the concept and actuality of a virtual world, I started a Second Life business location last year. I have since transformed that location to my current business Anise Smith Marketing. My Second Life location has an area to get Free QR code T-shirts for your avataras well as shop for actual QR code products in real life.
I will be rolling out my new tech products division soon. I am currently working on it in real life and on Second Life, here’s a sneak peak.
I am also involved with helping to create and Empire Avenue hub on Second Life. So there is quite a lot going on in my Second Life world.
I am currently working with, Aries Graphic Design, owner Tami Highbaugh-Abdullah to do some really great things on Second Life. Tami and I attended Grad School together and we both see amazing possibilities with the future of virtual worlds. Therefore, we are continuing to grow our Second Life business locations because we are both very excited about the role that virtual worlds will play in our business and the future of marketing and business. This is one of the reasons that Tami has created a video series demonstrating some of the benefits of going virtual world with your business. See the videos below.
