Flesh physics would be really nice. I would settle for shirts and blouses that aren't painted-on textures, so that when I put on a T-shirt with a slogan, it's legible! (Stress wrinkles would be great, too...)

Iris' points are very well made. Her work is strong enough to send my students there to study her blog as part of our writing class. And I look forward to a sports coat that would drape half as nicely as a real one does.

I also have this perverse desire to chase my own hat down the streets of SL. More physics of this sort would add to game fun, though given how we all attach prims it's unlikely unless we could script in this behavior.

This is actually a serious point; SL realizes the Surrealists' fantasies so well that I often feel myself to be in a Dali painting. But in SL, I could FLY down the street to grab my hat. . .
