For a while now, our team has included members from all over Alaska. We even have a member in Mexico! We are currently working on a project to help our virtual members interact even more with the team. We call it Project Avatar.
Project Avatar is a robot to act as a body for our virtual members. This will help increase interaction between virtual and physical members. It will also increase the appeal of being a virtual member. We hope to finish the project by January.
We have had virtual members for many years now. You may notice them on the computer being held in team pictures. And over the years, we have greatly grown in our ability to connect with our members. We hope for this project to add another level to these interactions.
