Mobile avatars will become commonplace

recently signed up to IMVU 3D chat. It’s worth a spin. Instead of the
relatively mundane text interface on most IM services, users chat via
avatars. The text appears in speech bubbles that slowly float upward. A
range of expressions and moves are available, such as a handshake, hug,
break dance, hi-five and many more. Some moves, like more intimate
hugs, are only available between users already connected as buddies.
