Using the Evolver Clone. Is that me?

Yet more experiments with Evolver. I tried using the single photo upload and then adjusting the regsitration points on the face. The result is interesting I think.

It was from this delightful glasses removed picture of my goodself. See what you think.
Quick image for avatar face creation
As an avatar augmentalist rather than a realist I think I prefer the more extreme cartoon or enhanced avatars to the photo real. I was getting a little bit of personal uncanny valley each time I try pasting my face into something. So I will stick with the previous AV for now.

The inchventure – come on in.

There a few days left to join in the fun in round 2 of Jerry Paffendorf’s innovative project to create a network of inch size land parcels in Detroit linked with virtual land too. Its intriguing and fun to think where this will go.
To quote from http://7billionfriends.com/
“In my pursuit of ever cooler, grander, more meaningful things that use the network to mix physical stuff with virtual stuff and products with stories, I’ve been working on a project in the wild and wooly city of Detroit, Michigan called LOVELAND: http://makeloveland.com .

In its simplest terms I’m inviting people to move into Detroit for $1 a square inch. More abstractly but importantly, the attraction is to create a tiny new globally networked city within the city that people around the world can own, inhabit, and create in. The physical space will also be mirrored online through “The Inchernet” so in addition to physical scaping it’s perfect for digital creatives like you (games, sites, worlds, models, augmented reality, etc).”

What’s not to love about this ? So Feeding Edge is joining in as you might expect, come join us.

And there he is. Evolver to Unity3d and the web
