2019 BIZ: #VWEDU: A place for people (you) to design gardens. Or other places. No lifting. No digging. Concentrate on placing and seeing the result.

A place for people (you) to design gardens. 
Or other places.  No lifting. No digging.  
Concentrate on placing and seeing the result.

A system to design any kind of layout (where you arrange things for attractive appearance or other purpose.)  The objects are supplied as inventory.   The user selects and places them.  Learners can practice placement.  Designers can do rapid prototyping.  Customers can see the planned layout before they approve it.

Go there

  • Web link: Garden Palettes
  • Closed to Hypergrid (use a Kitely avatar)
  • Firestorm Hop (In Kitely paste in the address bar of Firestorm viewer, enter.)
  • hop:// Palettes/44/254/22

A bluebird sings

 More birds on the periphery

Even mushrooms
  • The red one looks like Amanita muscaria.
  • Maybe toxic, maybe hallucinogenic. 
  • There could be more mushrooms, supporting a course on mushrooms.

  1. :) This is Ramesh, thanks for sharing this info Selby. Just a note from me to say that the new systems we have worked on are a major improvement from the above. It's far more user friendly and far more powerful. We will be talking about it very soon.

  2. I look forward to reporting on the new system
