Museum 3 - what will the museum of the future be like?
Virtual worlds are interactive environments created in a computer system. Virtual worlds are typically online and involve communities with many individuals. Many virtual worlds are rendered in 3-D and people participate as avatars. Avatars often take the form of people, but can be anything like animals, mythical creatures, and common objects. Virtual worlds are exciting to the museums of the future because they allow interactive exploration of various exhibits. For example, people could explore a virtual world of ancient egypt and witness the construction of the pyramids.
