Yahoo! unveiled a debut version of Yahoo! 3D with Caligari Corp., a creator of 3D graphics and VRML tools. By clicking on the Yahoo! 3D link on the Yahoo! main site, users can travel through 3D worlds while searching for information on the Web. Each building represents a Yahoo! category, such as arts, sciences or recreation and sports. Viewers choose to be guided by pre-defined camera views or roam freely to any building. Each main category building contains 3D objects representing subcategories, such as a ballerina for "Dance" and rain clouds and lightning for "Weather."
