Will Google Start Second Life Competitor?
Almost a year ago rumors were going that Google was planning to launch a 3D social network like Second Life. I have not seen it yet, have you?
The rumor came from students and from Michael Eisenberg, a partner at Benchmark Capital, which is one of the investors in Second Life.
He said the rumor is “Google is working on turning Google Earth into a virtual world a la Second Life.”
Also CNN wrote Google would move into 3D virtuals worlds, and would use its Maps and Earth applications to support its virtual world. And Tech Crunch also wrote about Google’s project Redefine your world with Arizona State University.
Unfortunately, I have not found any news that Google has delivered this full UGC 3D virtual world yet.
Do you think it’s just speculations or do you have any new clues for our community?
