I feel like this is the start of something new... I can’t imagine this is the last company to launch with a contest like this

Pros:

The competition for Poodles is an amazing idea Love the variety of settings and how expressive you can make 🐩

Cons:

Some minor visual glitches, but nothing big!

If we hold the idea that that the digiverse is inevitable to be true, then digital avatars becomes a necessity. I think we're seeing the first step towards that reality with Eternal.

Pros:

Creates a level of immersion into the body that really isn't captured by current games (Skyrim, LoL, Mii)

Cons:

Super basic atm and would love to see more accurate capture of my facial features, particular tongue
