Dread Central Gets Lively!
You may not have heard about Lively.com yet. No one could blame you; it’s only two days old. But whether you were there when it launched or just heard about it here, you can’t deny how cool the application is.
Sign up for a free account at Lively.com, and you get to create not only your own 3D avatar but a fully customizable “room” for it. But the fun doesn’t stop there. These rooms can be embedded on ANY page you have access to. So you can post your 3D world on MySpace, Facebook, or even your regular blog. Add to that the fact that anyone with an account can actually enter your room and interact with you, and you have a pretty sick application.
We here at Dread Central felt this was way too cool not to implement on the site. Feel free to check out our Virtual Graveyard! And to make things even cooler, we have added Lively support to all our members' profile pages. Should you choose to create an account, you can submit your Room ID number when you edit your profile here on DreadCentral.com, and your profile page will automatically embed your 3D world.
Here is a quick list of things you can do in Lively:
- Chat with other users
- Interact with others through predefined animations (Choke is my favorite)
- Stream YouTube videos right from customizable TV sets
- Share photos
- Leave comments
