Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: Avatars On Your Web Page

When you visit a web page, wouldn’t it be nice to see if any of your fellow co-workers or students were at the site and then have a chat with them? Imaging having an online team meeting and having everyone visit a specific web site. A site called Zweitgeist has developed a technology that allows you to create an avatar and then use that avatar to have discussions with other avatars who are also visiting a specific web site.

You can see an example of two avatars chatting on the bottom of the page shown in the image below (look at the very bottom). You can go to zweitgeist and set up your own avatar and give it a try. You can also see others on the site if you go to Zweitgeist after you log into the avatar system.
