Abstract

This paper addresses some of the central questions currently related to 3-dimensional In-habited Virtual Worlds (3D-IVWs), their virtual interactions and communication. First, 3D-IVWs – seen as a new and unique form of multimedia – are introduced and the social construction of the 3D-IVW technology is briefly discussed. Second, a selection of the basic concepts and identifiable enti-ties in 3D-IVWs is defined and commented upon. Third, some of the strange digital creatures, which currently inhabit 3D-IVWs in the form of cyber-hybrids, are outlined. Fourth, modes of interactivity and (virtual) interactions between users, avatars, bots, etc. in the new Virtual Worlds are briefly pre-sented and typologized. Finally, the changing Internet and the virtual futures of 3D-IVWs are re-flected on.
