Real-world control panel for the virtual world

William and Andy write in with a physical controller for the virtual world –

“Andy and I cobbled together a hardware control panel and wired it to its counterpart in Second Life. We like to think of it as somewhat “entangled.”
The physical panel is built on top of an Arduino development board, and connects to Second Life through a series of scripts. As a practical matter, we’re hoping more refined approaches can make life easier for machinima and multimedia events in Second Life.”
