Voyeur Dreams in Second Life

Voyeur Dreams (moderate)

Over the years I’ve encountered, and persisted, through a variety of difficult assignments in order to share various destinations with you.

I’ve dodged bullets, outrun zombies, fought off dragons, and resisted incubi. Today is the first time I’ve had building facades fall on me while I took photos.

Voyeur Dreams describes itself as the “…remains of a doomed civilization, once brimming with life, now inhospitable wasteland, polluted and radioactive, war-torn cities, survivors undermined by disease and hunger.”

The name also refers to a club/lounge in the center of the sim.

This made me think of something I first heard about a few months ago. There is a segment of the technology industry called “teledildonics” or “cyberdildonics”. Honest! These people create sex toys that can be controlled remotely using the internet.

A new social network has been announced for people who want to hook up and, um, play with these toys. You can click on the “Shop” button at the top of their screen and see some of the *cough* product without signing up.

I won’t tell you what I think about that. I will say this though:

People working on the internet of things need to take a step back occasionally, look up from their own little gadgets, and consider the world they’re creating. I forsee a niche market for those of us perfectly willing to remain surrounded by analogue toasters, and tea cups, and vacuum cleaners.

I’m not going to give the voyeurs of the world any more windows of opportunity than I have to. :)

  1. I’m going to pretend that I didn’t read paragraphs five and six. :) I completely agree about eschewing technology on occasion. I use fountain pens whenever possible, in large part because I enjoy the feel of the nib on paper. (As I’m also left-handed, I’ve become accustomed to ink smears across the edge of my hand. Never let it be said I don’t make sacrifices.) And, much as I enjoy the convenience of e-readers, I still prefer the old-fashioned analogue book. Sorry, trees.

  2. I’m sort-of a techie, but I too love that feeling of pen on paper, watching the ink flow across the microscopic hills and valleys of a smooth papier linge. But it’s true: I love the ballet of fingers on the keyboard, the soft music of a good machine responding to my touch.
    However, I do worry about whether we are inadvertently teaching people to SCAN information rather than delving into it – at least in some cases. I don’t like skipping along on the surface of a matter (well, there are a FEW exceptions – such as rodents and arachnids), generally preferring a little depth. Of course, I’m conflicted about it all because – as my silly English professor husband often says: “I likes me some breadth of information too, ya know!”
    Thank you for reminding me again about the joys of analogue. But do we HAVE to keep the vacuum cleaner? SIGH…
