Your avatar represents you
  • You can change your face any time.
  • More faces can be available if needed.
  • Your own face could be included after a few tech matters are solved.
You occasionally need this menu

You need these instructions to start
  • To find out what the keys do, just try them.  
  • If the world is embedded in another web page, you need to use the wasd keys.
  • The arrow keys may not work right with an embedded world.
Some options on the web-world page

The new kind of web page

Signs and other things in walking distance
  • A 3D world can have lots of information nearby
  • As we know very well from the world we live in.
I can get closer to read the signs
  • And we know from experience that it works.
  • We just need to know how:
  • Click the screen, move the cursor to look at where we want to go, then press the up arrow. 
The elevators take you to other places
  • Each floor is really a different web-world.
