    Hello Club Orlov Comrades!This is a very quick 3D sketch that we made of \”The Quid\”.LINK: http://goo.gl/dComyrThe cool thing about it is that the open source software that generated it is Russian. :)The modeling is imperfect but maybe it helps you to imagine a party inside of it, full of intelligent people, sailing far away: exploring the world and human's diversity.However, you need a hardware that supports WebGL to see it ;)All the best!Greetings!Ortiz,From Brazil.
