Task: Facilitate a directional redesign and product test of the virtual reality ‘rubenoid’ avatars towards a more desirable, mature and comfortable aesthetic while keeping that aesthetic out of the uncanny valley (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley).

Task: Provide in-VR environment modeling review of the meeting and quest levels.
