Aerosmith has used the Internet since even before the arrival of the World
Wide Web, doing chats on Prodigy in the early 90s, they were never seen as a particularly
wired act. This year, however, they changed all that with the 3-D technology on
their official site (aerosmith.com)
-- creating an online world where fans can exist and interact with the band in
the form of avatars in a virtual space. It's a bizarre, thrilling new twist to
the world of official artist sites -- and it's one that seems to feed directly
off the band's own ideas about interaction and virtual reality. It's amazing to
think that a band with so many decades of experience under its belt still continues
to experiment with technology in such a way, when it could easily just sit back
and watch the money keep rolling in. They're an unlikely choice to be such innovators,
but that makes it even more enthralling that they have gone this route.
