Would it be nice to have the possibility to have calls between domains with your avatar friends? Or to be called when you are on the road to your mobile phone? Or to receive calls in your domain from the real world or from SL or other VR worlds? For those who have seen the “Ready Player One” movie could be a dream come true…
