Cambridge, MA – The Infinite Mind, public radio’s most honored and most listened-to health and science show, is opening a virtual world headquarters and broadcast facility in the 3-D virtual world Second Life.

‘This represents an unprecedented leap forward for broadcasting into virtual reality and 3-D on-line communities,’ said Bill Lichtenstein, president of the Peabody Award-winning media company Lichtenstein Creative Media, which produces The Infinite Mind. ‘This first step ‘through the looking glass’ into the virtual world, will allow The Infinite Mind, through its on-line facilities located on an expansive virtual complex, the opportunity to reach a vast new global audience.’ Visitors will be able to listen to audio and video, attend live mixed reality events, and participate in interactive community education and outreach.
