Sega has opened up a new website for its upcoming virtual aquarium, Fish Life. This aquarium uses computer technology to replicate an aquarium on a 15 inch flat screen, giving (according to Sega) an alternative to real aquariums that has all the relaxation and soothing powers minus the maintenance and difficulty of installation.

Sega boasts that the aquarium features some of the most advanced technology out there, which provides, first off, for incredible realtime computer graphics displaying fish of all shapes and sizes. The screen depicting the fish is actually touch sensitive, and the unit comes equipped with a microphone which allows you to speak to the fish as well. Thanks to the aquarium being nothing more than a computer program, you can actually load in a new piece of software to get an entirely different environment, complete with different fish.

The whole she-bang is quite pricey, with the hardware running for 498,000YEN and each piece of software going for 198,000 YEN (yikes - it's the Neo Geo all over again!), but if you want virtual fish…
