Google Goes Lively
Reuters reports that Google yesterday launched, ‘Lively’, a ‘three-dimensional virtual experience website’ to match the virtual world Linden Lab's Second Life. So we face more avatars, three-dimensional graphics and virtual rooms.
Lively plays YouTube videos in virtual TVs and displays photos in virtual picture frames inside the rooms.
It’s certainly new with little there today but Google obviously see the potential and the trick will be using the Google brand to leverage the footfall. Who knows we may well soon see another animated signing from the publisher Snowbooks but this time in Lively.
