Earlier I posted that 345million has been invested in Virtual Worlds this year – this movie Initially posted at marketfactnl – has been translated (close to) below for this part of the world… When i first starting hearing about Second Life in 2006 – much has happened in the space – this video is a tour of some of the virtual properties around today – Google Lively & Twinity appear so the video is coolly current–
Virtual Worlds in the near future are going to play an increasing role in our lives. The fact that Google with Google Lively its first footsteps in the digital universe continues, suggests that more has happened than just a new gimmick. The number of virtual worlds is also growing. Most of the virtual worlds in the Netherlands we hear nothing or very little about. Yet another far-from-us-bed-show? Gary Hayes is currently engaged in an investigation into virtual worlds and he has recorded his journey on YouTube. This provides a seven-minute film in which 50 virtual worlds pass the revue.

There’s so many virtual worlds and chats available, it’s amazing that since Google released Lively how much more popular it is becoming. There is still are large audience that is not aware of Lively or any other 3D world for that matter, imagine if Google put a small banner or link to Lively on their default page. Google seems to have come late in the realm of 3D chats, but their size and reputation will probably allow them to conquer many of the smaller existing 3D chats and worlds.
Lovely video, and interesting links. VR sites are currently big news with regard to the therapeutic community/profession here in the UK, I’ll distribute this if I may to educate people as to what Virtual Worlds exist
