If you spend most of your time in a alternative world, you might as well start integrating your real life right into it. Online virtual world Second Life is looking to roll-out a system that would allow you to receive real life phone calls in the Second Life game.
Second Life developer Linden Lab has created a way for online avatars to recieve real life phone calls, which will be integrated into game play at some point in early 2008. Second Life users will have their real life phone numbers associated with their avatars, relying on the voice technology already used in-game. — Andrew Dobrow
