Support This Kickstarter: Linden/Virtual World Veteran Jerry Ventrella's Virtual Life Picture Book

Jeffrey Ventrella is a pioneer of virtual worlds and avatar expression, formerly a lead engineer of There.com and at Linden Lab (where he created flexiprims among many other Second Life wonders), and now he's co-creating a Kickstarter called Peck Peck's Journey: A Picture Book That Spawns Virtual Life. Let's take a look:

Peck Peck is a species of virtual like called a "wiglet", and here's the thing that's special about them:

Wiglets are not at all like typical animated characters. These critters are self-animated. They respond to real-world gravity (thanks to the accelerometers and gyroscopes in your smart phone :) They can look at you (no matter where you are), and they have funny little brains.

Much more on the Kickstarter page here.

The body language on those wiglets is fantastic. So expressive!
