This bartender robot is based on a Artificial Intelligence system. It / he answers to some questions and it can hold simple conversations. See also Chatbot: Artificial Intelligence for Avatars.

Nice skyline, though.
Tweaking Client / Rendering / Types settings in the Second Life client may lead to some strange, melting effects 😉
Make the Client / Server menu appear (CTRL+ALT+D or CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+D), then play with Client / Rendering / Types settings.
Made in Second Life using the Linux client and Xvidcap (Please, Linden Labs, give your linux users machinima capability! we need video recording -and playing- support!)

Vivox’s mission is delivering voice communications to Massive Multi-player Online Gaming. In these days, they are giving away one million free phone minutes and conference-call enabling “microphones” to SL players. This should enable SL users to call for free real (i.e., cell and land-line) phones. You should also be able to do five-way conference calls with other residents.
There are some issues, though:
Gamasutra reports this is going to work with North America only (official confirm here);
They choose to launch their product on October, Wednesday 4, 9-12 AM, when unfortunately Second Life was (is) down for update;
The Vivox phone launch is going to start in a few hours, but their main location is hardly reachable because of banned parcels all around it (update: they set up another place);
No Vivox client for you Mac and Linux users (one would think that multi-platform is a important issue if you’re making communication tools), however they say there could be an open-source client…soon or later;
At the moment, no way to register in their forums for me (I get this error: “Ran into problems sending Mail. Response: 550 5.7.1 … Relaying denied”).

Terror will rain down upon the unfit gods and the flock that they govern, from now until the End of Days.
I think another attack is going on. I started getting dozens of object offerings, then I got logged out.
Grid is closed now. I’m in world, attack still going on.
GUI messages are reporting these information about people giving objects (actually, these may not link to the authors of the attack): Taury Barbee, Kacey Raabe, ares Hoggard, lessthan Abel, elleair Plasma, Thomas Goodfellow; and here are a couple of names of objects: 9830113.000000, 9486346.000000
Objects say and shout: Terror will rain down upon the unfit gods and the flock that they govern, from now until the End of Days.

From the SL Chatbot Introduction
Chatbot is based on the A.L.I.C.E. foundations AIML, and is designed to carry on relatively intricate conversations with humans. The Chatbot program is hosted on the free Pandorabots website. Metaverse Technology primary contribution is a Second Life interface that utilizes the LLHttpRequest functionality to instantiate a Chatbot in the Second Life Metaverse.
You can contact the creators Navillus Batra or Anthony Reisman in world, or check out Beta, a demo chatbot.
The SL Chatbot is a great item to experiment with on Second Life. It is fun to have around, and if it ever gets on your nerves, you can always shut him down. Put him in a magic hat and make it a magic talking hat. Turn your amazing vehicle into an amazing vehicle with a attitude that can talk back.
One of the great things about your clubs or stores in Second Life is that they are always open, but you can’t always be there. So add a SL Chatbot, use our straightforward customization process, and have it create that welcome feeling for whom ever might come your way.
