Aki Octagon could use a rest so we took a visit to W Hotel's aloft.
Prior to opening to the public (in First Life) in 2008, aloft hotels now offers a sneak preview inside of Second Life.
And no Seth, I cannot figure out how to keep my brown pants from riding up my arse in 2L. So much for the brave new future...
And just as in First Life, way-finding systems here have alot to be desired. Waiting for the elevator.
Overall a good idea and purposeful use for a First Life(1L) brand to insert into Second Life(2L). Besides my wayfinding snafus at the elevator, I enjoyed exploring the hotel and seeing the future. I'd envision coming back to aloft (in both 1L and 2L), particularly to hold a party with my virtual friends.
Maybe we can hold our Annual Planning Event here, Deborah!
Share ideas that inspire. FALLON PLANNERS (and co-conspirators) are freely invited to post trends, commentary, obscure ephemera and insightful rants regarding the experience of branding.
