There has been a lot of speculation in recent months about the possibility of Google creating a virtual world. Second Life has opened the door to user created content in a 3D virtual world. Google could be an amazing solution to the myriad of problems SL has. The 3D modeling capabilities that Google has already created would be an amazing boon to the creation of virtual worlds. The blogging world has already noted that Google is working on something new with the help of the Arizona State University. Google has also recently purchased the social networking platform Zingku. Could these be steps to a social virtual world or will it end in a Google social networking site. I would love to see what Google could do with a 3D virtual world and can only hope that they will be moving in that direction soon. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
