Google Launches New Virtual Reality: Lively

Google has finally launched the long-awaited Lively virtual reality service.

Will it be a SecondLife killer, as some have suggested? So far, no, since it doesn’t have one huge planet or room for interacting with everyone as SecondLife does.

But this is the first baby-step Google has taken into VR, and we can expect them to evolve it further, particularly if the service proves popular. I haven’t tried it out just yet, but the feature descriptions include adding VR rooms to webpages, pulling photos and vids into the VR environments, and tying it closely to Google Talk – Google’s chat service.

Check out their demo video and Google’s blog post announcing it:

 

This new feature will be well worth watching, I believe.

    Interesting that Google is tackling the VR world. It will certainly be cool to see what it evolves into.

    It will be interesting to see what effect this will have on SecondLife…….I wonder if SecondLife will lose its SERPS position
