On August 31, 2010, Intel Labs posted this video discussing the advances in scalability in the OpenSim platform of Science Sim. Fashion Research Institute has the pleasure of collaborating by providing the avatars and apparel shown in the video.
“John” is the basic default corporate male avatar provided by Fashion Research Institute to ScienceSim. John’s feminine counterpart, Jane, isn’t shown in this video. Just like in the physical world, it seems the price of beauty presents interesting challenges – Jane’s hair, jewelry and other accessories have a much higher avatar rendering cost than John’s much more simple attire.
Jane will make her appearance at some point, however, along with the four other new default avatars being provided by Fashion Research Institute to ScienceSim as part of a corporate donation of a new content library to ScienceSim.
