Open source museum in Second Life?


[The Tech Museum of Innovation](, in San Jose, California, has announced the winners of its UCanTu virtual exhibit competition — but are they real or virtual? The museum says the exhibits benefit humanity and will be displayed in the virtual museum in Second Life and at the physical museum in California.

[Tech Virtual]( exhibits encompassed health, education, environment, economic development and equality, and were based on past award winners in the real world. The winning projects involved creating solar boats and human-powered irrigation systems.

The Tech Museum calls the virtual exhibits part of an open source venture, though it’s unclear what makes them open source. Cool to see what museums can do online.
