Berlin-based Metaversum, operator of the beta 3D virtual world Twinity, has landed a “significant multi-million euro investment” from Balderton to take the environment global. Twinity’s take on 3D immersion isthat “virtual worlds linked closely with reality will significantly influence the future of the internet”, making it perhaps a little more like Sony’s (NYSE: SNE) PS3 Home than Linden Labs’ Second Life (pics). Inhabitants can create their own characters and homes and communicate with each other. The space has been in private beta since November, and is seeking a rollout manager; it had support from Grazia Equity.
