Chat, shop and play in virtual S’pore by year-end – itsReal

Local Internet users and their life-like 3D digital avatars can soon sip virtual cuppas in virtual Shenton Way cafes. What’s more, they will also be able to chat, work and play in other true-to-life, online 3D cityscapes of Singapore.

This virtual world that looks and feels like Singapore is the brain child of German firm Metaversum. Virtual Singapore, which will be based on a Metaversum platform called Twinity, will be rolled out by year-end, a senior company official told BizIT this week.

In this virtual city, users will be able to buy and furnish virtual apartments, and invite real friends over. They can also carry out real world business transactions, like checking-in airline tickets or booking a business centre.

‘The virtual Singapore city will be close to being a replica of Singapore,’ said Jeremy Snyder, executive vice-president of operations, Metaversum.
