Evolver – portable avatars

evolverThere’s a great story over on Maxping about Evolver, a now web-based avatar creation tool from Darwin Dimensions. There’s no shortage of tools like this but where Evolver shows particular promise is in regards to being able to share avatar creations across a range of platforms and media.

The majority of partners are yet to be announced but the beta already offers sharing with the following virtual worlds: Friends Hang Out, 3Dxplorer, Qwaq, WorldViz, Vast Park, Torque Game, Wonderland and Active World. The detail of the avatars isn’t to be sneezed at either – as the public gallery shows

There’s also a service to clone your real-world face onto an Evolver avatar, something I’ve never really seen the point of doing but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t popular. All up, Evolver has promise – a Linden Lab takeover target perhaps? You can also read a short interview with Darwin Dimensions’ CEO here.

  1. A development to take note of, certainly – SL is but one grid for now, but hopefully, there'll be many more in the future, not to mention those running OpenSim. Being able to be yourself on any compatible grid is a natural progression, if SL and OpenSim are to evolve beyond being walled gardens, even if intricate and ornate.

    Though I don't think I'll be abandoning my Kani self just yet, given the furry examples there. =:)
