“Strong, savvy, style, sweet, and sass”, that’s how some dog lovers and owners have described the Doberman Pinscher.
Said to be the top smartest canine breeds in the world, the Doberman Pinscher is incredibly perceptive, intuitive, and sensitive. Properly trained and socialized, a Doberman won’t just place itself between you and a visible [...]
The team put its rapid-development capabilities into action and whipped out a 3D visual replica of the Abbottabad compound in Second Life. It is built to the proper scale and orientation of the RL compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Although it is still an on-going work, the space is pretty convincing for only five [...]
Following the development path of the Pug and Doberman, we are now modeling a virtual Pitbull for a client. The features are not complete yet. But, the image shows the organic sculpt of the Pitbull head as it is being created. Final output will be rendered and textured for Second Life pet [...]
The newly redesigned BLiSS interface is intended to make it more intuitive and easier for users. Avatrian’s radical change makes it more obvious that the combination of crop selections will determine how many explorers can be supported in a mission. Resources needed for input are directly tied to the production output of oxygen, [...]
For its 4 year anniversary, Avatrian makes a return trip to Tabili. Since our last visit, there are now 128 students in this rural elementary school (a significant increase from 59 just 2 years ago). Big credit to the improvement in attendance goes to the Barangay Captain (DanDan Demana), the two full-time school teachers (yes [...]
I have to admit, no matter how many people enjoy the benefits of OpenSim, its a pain to maintain and improve OpenSim. Coupled with the idea that I work on a Windows setup, the problems complicate especially that most Windows setups rely on binaries rather than source code.
I have worked a lot trying to implement [...]
It’s still currently in the works. But this is the diagram in 3D of the room we designed and developed for specific use in Teleplace. I’m not really sure why it is called a war room. It’s not for any military type of use. But, the purpose of the space is [...]
This one is gigantic. But it is only because we fancy sitting on top of its head (a la Clifford, the Big Red Dog). The one developed by Avatrian for BioBreeds is a cute little puppy that stands, runs, sits and assumes many other positions. The Pug is the latest release from [...]
The Orlando Sentinel featured the University of Central Florida’s (UCF) Virtual Polling Place, built by Avatrian LLC inside Second Life, as a unique way to get young people to become interested in becoming volunteer Poll Workers.
Last year, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission awarded a two-year, $75,000 grant to UCF, Valencia Community College and the Orange [...]
