A 3d chat program that should only be used by people with fast internet and a good processor. Users can interact with one another virtually with everything from hugs and kisses to pokes in the eye.
Users can also buy virtual clothes and rooms/houses for their avatars (avi for short). While the credits to buy clothes are for sale, most users find it easy to survive without actually having to buy anything via Free Spin, Browsing the New Products Page, Inviting Friends, and joining MetaRL.
It's a fun 3d chat program, but also quite hilarious/annoying with the people that take it too realistically, and those credit whores.
