Create Your Own World
Kaneva allows millions of people to explore, interact and create their own worlds. You can make a virtual world or a 3D MMO Game World. Explore a large number of Worlds made by our community and have fun with friends. Bring your imagination and step into your own World on Kaneva.
It’s a brave, new world.
Combining a social network and a virtual world, Kaneva brings profiles and entertainment to the 3D realm in a modern-day, online digital world full of real friends and good times. Kaneva provides a whole new way — a more human way — to connect with friends online.
Kaneva members create the digital version of themselves — avatars — and then meet up in a vibrant, 3D world based on the modern day. Every Kaneva member gets a Kaneva City Loft — their own 3D space — that they can decorate and furnish in their unique style. You can bring your favorite videos, photos, music, and games, and watch them on your 3D televisions. You can invite friends to hang out in your 3D home or meet up in any of Kaneva’s public spaces and chat in real-time. You can shop for the latest fashions or home decor, chat, dance, play games, watch TV and movies, and come back again and again to explore and have fun in an ever evolving world full of exciting people, places and entertainment.
Pioneering the virtual world revolution.
According to Gartner, over 250 million people will be in virtual worlds by 2011.
This is the world we live in. At Kaneva, we’re blurring the line between the online and offline world. We’re creating a place where you can live out the 3D you as an extension of the real you. Instead of a virtual, non-realistic world, Kaneva is an extensible world that brings together the best of life and enables online connections and encourages and enhances real friendships.
Kaneva, Latin for ‘canvas’, is a digital canvas for creativity and entertainment. We continually evolve our world so that members can connect with others, share interests, build communities and 3D spaces, and share media.
Designed for the masses, Kaneva is easy-to-use, fun, and exciting. Jump in and play!
The birth of Kaneva.
A few years ago, one of the youngest and brightest Internet pioneers of our time, Christopher Klaus, was at the helm of his wildly successful brainchild, Internet Security Systems, Inc. (ISS). In 1993, long before the Internet became a household name, Chris was one of the first to recognize the need for Internet security. He founded Internet Security Systems and continued to lead the company’s technological vision. In 2006, Chris helped sell the company to IBM at a total value of more than one billion dollars. Throughout his tremendous success in the security field, Chris never let go of his early passions for gaming and entertainment.
Long before Web 2.0 became a buzz word, Chris started thinking of ways to harness the Internet’s power to fuse online communities, gaming, media sharing, social networking and immersive communication in a single forum. At the same time, Chris recognized the power and future of a 3D Internet. He envisioned user-friendly 3D hangouts for people to meet, interact, play games, watch entertainment and have a great time.
Thus, Kaneva was born. Kaneva is the first to integrate social networking, shared media, and collaborative online communities into a modern-day, immersive 3D world for the masses. Kaneva…imagine what you can do, do what you can imagine.
“I believe virtual worlds and MMOGs (Massively multiplayer online games) will be the next fully immersive way to engage with each other. We are in the infancy of this exciting new industry and are excited about the many opportunities to innovate and bring humanity together in ways that several years ago would only have seemed like science fiction.”
