IBM Finds Application for Second Life Scions

by Urizenus Sklar on 30/11/06 at 6:34 pm


If you were wondering what on earth you were going to do with your Millions of Us crafted Scions, well wonder no more. IBM has made its first contribution to Second Life — figuring out an application for those Scions. Kudo’s to Ian Hughes of IBM’s Hursley Park Lab who posted this idea on their Eight Mile Eightbar blog.

You know, with Christmas nearly upon us, I was thinking how much those SL Scions look like chrome plated fruitcakes, the ideal gift for your cyberpunk friends. They are like Mirroshades Festive (TM)!

    Yeah, those van things are really ugly, I don’t know who came up with that shoebox design in Scion, but it was a really bad idea.

    The Scion tCs are nice though.

    I shrunk mine down to little beads, polished them for days with a file, and made them into a necklace.

    I like the Scion ‘box’. Many makers have traded their engineering heritage for useless ornation over the past decade. The Scion bucks that trend. It is a van and nothing more. There is no dishonest pretense of elegance, or sex appeal. It may be the Volvo 240 of the 2000s. We’ll see.

    Introducing the Scion xB! With the latest in futuristic design…the BOX! Gaze upon its stupendous, fabulously useless splendor and design!
