Bubblegum and Molecules in Second Life

The American Chemical Society now has a booth in the Chemistry Corner on Drexel Island in Second Life. Finola Graves from ACS will pop in and out to meet people there.

The bubblegum machine featured on Nature Island a few months back is there and has been much improved. You can now just type the name of a molecule (e.g. viagra, caffeine) and it will fetch info from PubChem and create a 3D model on the spot.

To create any molecule (not just in PubChem), Hiro's molecule rezzer is there also and is freely available.
