Australian-based ExitReality launched a free tool it claims its application allows users to turn any regular website into a 3D virtual environment, where an avatar representing them can walk around and meet other browsers viewing the same website.
Browsers can use the tool to turn their social networking pages on sites such as Facebook and MySpace into a virtual apartment, where photographs are displayed on the wall and links to friends are “doors” leading to other apartments.
Users can customise their flats by “decorating” with 3D versions of couches from stores such as Ikea or downloading an e-jukebox to play music clips stored on their personal page.
Similarly, using ExitReality on video-sharing website YouTube creates a virtual cinema, where the browser’s avatar sits next to other users also logged on to watch the clip they have selected.
