Google Announces Lively!

From the Google Blog:

A while ago, I looked around the social web and wished that it could be less static. Sure, you can leave a comment on a blog or write a text blurb on your social networking profile. But what if you want to express yourself in a more fun way, with 3D graphics and real-time avatar interactions? I started asking this question as a 20% project, and I’m excited to announce today’s release of Lively by Google – a 3D virtual experience that is the newest addition to Google Labs.

Summed up Lively is a place where you can create your own interactive room, friends can then join your room (just like a chat room) and chat. This can then be implemented into your website or blog. We’ll have a play around with this new Google development and let you know how we get on. Read more here, or watch the video below.
