[This is another flash widget, so the first images are screenshots, and the flash images will go under the cut to speed loading on the main page.]
The imagini widget isn't exactly an avatar, and it doesn't aggregate your networks, but it is a nice little widget that could spark up an About Page or MySpace profile. It's clearly designed for younger folk, but I had a good time with it nonetheless.
It offers a series of questions and images; and from the images you choose emerges your Visual DNA:
Imagini calculates your VisualDNA™ from your choices.
It's a new way of communicating using images instead of words.
It's fun, quick and free...
Each tab has nicely written text, presumably describing the user -- and I have to say, it's not far off. It's easy to say that, because I think it's designed to flatter. Which is fine with me.
There is also a social networking aspect to this widget; along the side of the screen the service lists other people with similar Visual DNA -- though I'm not sure similarity equals a good match?
- Visually appealing
- Very easy to use
- Easily shared
- It is still beta, though I've noticed no problems using it
- Flash, which some folks avoid
- Not a lot of creative scope
