Virtual Ozzy Osbourne spotted at Playboy

Virtual Ozzy Osbourne spotted at Playboy: After a teaser campaign that created a lot of interest in the metaverse space Playboy has now opened their virtual mansion in Second Life.

The venue opened with a party (obviously) and the island is geared towards encouraging multimedia transactions into various Playboy websites.

This may not be a venue you would perhaps want to visit from work – it’s got a mature rating and most people there do seem to be wearing very little. Of course, you could always convince your boss (or IT department) that visiting the virtual Playboy mansion is in fact a research exercise into leveraging real world media into virtual worlds. Let me know how that goes.

One person who seemed keen to check out the launch is Ozzy Osbourne – or at least his 3D virtual self.
