Do you think your avatar can dance (or do any other fantastic feat)? High Fidelity is sponsoring an avatar talent show, with a $1000 real dollar cash prize for the best contestant.
"Whoever can do the coolest three minute act on April 21, no restrictions, with the audience voting live for the winner there in-world," HiFi founder Philip Rosedale tells me. "If it's fun we'll do it recurring, with bigger prizes. Seems like a great thing to test and a good use of VR."
To help inspire some ideas for your act, High Fidelity's Thomas Schofield sent me the sample video above. Be sure to watch around :30 for some Batman-looking dude juggling.
Yes, that's right: Apparently High Fidelity's physics and avatar responsiveness is good enough to actually (virtually) juggle!
