The area of virtual environments has received an increasingly growing attention from the research community, leading to the design of various innovative albeit incompatible protocols. In this paper, we present an open modular middleware that allows the clients and servers of multiple virtual worlds to be dynamically interfaced via a granular design. Our technology significantly alleviates the workload traditionally imposed to developers, and we see it as an important step forward towards the design of universal interfaces for interoperable virtual environments.
