This seems to be an attempt at combining all the additive elements of the internet that people mostly use, IM, blogs and surfing. Seems to have been around a while, but first I’ve seen in – interesting idea though. What do you think?
Yoowalk is a no-download virtual world which lets you browse the web, connect with friends, and design your own space in a live 3D environment.
Walk around the web
Yoowalk is a virtual representation of the world wide web. It is composed of categorized villages of 3D websites called walksites that you browse with a personalized avatar. Simply walk your avatar along the streets to explore the coolest versions of your favorite websites.
Interact with live web traffic
Once in Yoowalk, you will not only see other avatars browsing the web, but will be able to interact with them in real-time. Feel free to follow a crowd, ask for shopping advice, or publicly debate your opinion in the streets.
Congregate with friends
With the Yoowalk Messenger, you are able to chat, locate, and browse the web with your friends. You can also sign into additional Instant Messengers and invite these friends to meet you in Yoowalk. Because Yoowalk is free and requires no download, they can join you with a simple mouse click.
Personalize your own interactive room
Design and decorate your own 3D space with furniture, accessories, interactive applications, and your favorite web content. You can also upload personal music and photos to share with your friends. When you’re done, invite them over to hang out and laugh at the latest pics from your crazy weekend.
