[Commentary and Interviews] [Alpha World]



Alpha World, a product developed by Worlds Inc., has proven itself an incredible new technology for the Internet. We believe, without a doubt, that anyone who enters Alpha World will experience something that up until now has only been written about in speculative fiction, and shown in movies such as Johnny Mnemonic. What we have here, in essence, is an actual, working cyberspace where people can manipulate objects, interact with their computers and information, and carry on relationships with others through the use of their representational selves -- avatars.

Online Magazine is proud to be working with Worlds Inc. and Alpha Worlds to bring you the latest and best services related to Alpha World. We look forward to seeing you in the metaverse.
