NMR viewer in Second Life

Andrew Lang just finished coding this nifty little JCAMP-DX viewer in Second Life. The video shows that you can expand any area of the spectrum by typing zoom followed by the desired range in the chat box.

You can also type "back" and "reset" commands. It essentially functions like Robert Lancashire's JSpecView if it were running in Second Life (although integration is not yet implemented).

There are still a few kinks to iron out but it should work with any spectrum that can be represented in JCAMP-DX format: IR, CNMR, HNMR, UV-vis, MS, etc.

This should extend considerably the set of tools available to chemistry teachers who use Second Life to interact with students.

Give it a try on Second Nature island: SLURL. (You'll need the most recent version of Second Life to run this and click the link from within IE, not Firefox)
