Who it is developed by
Released in June 2003, Second Life was developed by Linden Lab. The road to the launch started in 1999 when Philip Rosen pioneered the concept of computer hardware known as The Rig. This allowed people (residents) aged 16+ to participate ‘virtually’ in a three-dimensional online environment known as Second Life using their avatar. Avatar forms can be either created by the user, or bought pre-made. Now this multiplayer online platform entertains millions around the globe with an expansive online community, a unique virtual currency and a robust marketplace.
