Waltham, MA, startup Everyscape launched today, posting 3-D photorealistic builds of Boston, New York City, Aspen, and Miami for users to explore. (See “A New Perspective on the Virtual World.”) Still in early phases, Boston and New York contain only public spaces (New York doesn’t yet include every street), while Aspen and Miami feature “miniscapes” of the insides of some privately owned buildings. Everyscape invites users to become “scape artists” by posting supplementary content to the virtual cityscapes. The company plans to continue adding cities to its virtual world. Laguna Beach, CA, and Cambridge, MA, are next on the schedule. To see a video created by Everyscape’s CTO and founder, Mok Oh, that demonstrates the look and feel of the company’s virtual cities, click the link below.
