For many in Second Life, a gasmask may not be the first thing you would think of as a bdsm toy. However, Scientific Revolution's gasmask has many qualities that make it a top-notch tool for beginners using the Restrained Life Viewer. It is very easy to get a glimpse into the power of RLV for enhancing your Second Life experience by using this device.
How Does It Work?
The Scientific Revolution Gasmask comes in two parts. One is the wearable gasmask itself that attaches to the nose. The other part is a blindfold HUD. It is possible to use the gasmask without the HUD, but using the HUD makes it feel like you are indeed wearing a gasmask in Second Life.
Once you are wearing the gasmask, you can simply click on it or anyone else can click on it to begin using it. You may lock the mask on yourself or another person can take ownership of the gasmask by locking it on to you. Owners then have access to a wide range of functions. These include setting a timer for how long the mask stays locked, limiting vision with the blindfold HUD, garbling speech and a whole range of RLV specific functions like controlling emotes, IM, tp's, and blocking the inventory. The person wearing the gasmask can be easily exposed so anyone can have access to the mask's functions.
The blindfold HUD is something very specific to the Scientific Revolution Gasmask. When you are wearing it, your field of vision is limited to two round circles approximating what you would see looking through an actual gasmask. The owner of the mask may also reduce the clarity of vision or shut it off completely leaving the person wearing the gasmask with a black screen.
