Wink xChip smartHUD App in Second Life

Lately I’ve done a few videos where I shared interesting and informative HUDs in Second Life. I think making a video is the best way to showcase them. I’ve gone ahead and made a YouTube playlist for all of my HUD videos, hope you get a chance to watch more of them. Also if you get the chance, check out all of my playlists on YouTube. I’ve been trying to organize my videos in a better way so they are easier to lookup and access, let me know if you have any suggestions!

Wink xChip App in Second Life

Today I’ve done a video for Wink which is an app for xChip. xChip is a smartHUD which creates a smartphone like experience for Second life. Wink is an app for it that provides a social experience within SL and connects people based on interests. Both the xChip smartHUD and the Wink app are free. xChip is available for free on marketplace and Wink is currently at Uber.

I’ve done a quick video showing how to use it but basically once you pick up the HUDs, just attach/wear them and follow the instructions to create an account and then start winking at people!

I haven’t taken detailed pictures of the sim I’m on or the clothing I’m wearing, but you can see it in detail in the video. The sim is Vintage Romance by Britain Knave. You can see more beautiful pictures of this sim in their flickr group.

The outfit I’m wearing is from Blueberry and my hair is from Exile, both are available at Collabor88 right now. The rings I’m wearing on my right hand are from Mandala and they are also at collabor88.

My eye makeup, which I zoomed in on in the video, is from SlackGirl. I recently got some very beautiful cosmetics from Slackgirl who makes cosmetics for a variety of heads. Check out Slackgirl’s flickr and her marketplace store. The eyeshadow I’m wearing is called Hathor and is available at her mainstore.

Have fun playing with the HUD you guys, don’t forget to wink at me! ;)
