Evolver.com – Creating A 3D Avatar

Evolver.comIt looks like 3D avatar mania has kicked in. I guess some people just got fed up with these flat caricatures that most of us still love, and wanted to get their hands on something more realistic.

Whether these 3D avatars will become the norm remains moot, of course. The one advantage they have is that they are going to mirror who you are in any context where reality is simulated. This can factor heavily in due time.

For now, all they are is a more time-consuming alternative to traditional avatars. That was only to be expected, really, as designing a 3D version of you had to be detailed in order not to be too generic. Still, the process takes a premade avatar in order to cut unnecessary complexities short.

Once your Avatar has been created, you can deploy it wherever you like – Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, Blogger… Again, I wonder how widespread this can become, and whether these 3D versions of ourselves are going to become our calling card on the social web or not. I guess we are all about to find the answer soon.
