Puff the Magic LEGO Dragon

K. R. Thórisson Ymir Mindmakers Gandalf
Puff the Magic LEGO Dragon was created when I was a research scientist in the Wizard Group at LEGO Digital. The dragon was modeled after the company's small plastic dragon, with the same degrees of freedom. The dragon's body inhabited a virtual world running on an SGI Reality Monster and its mind ran on two SGI workstations and a Wintel box. The dragon never became really smart, but it rivaled the brains of Gandalf the Communicative Humanoid, who could guide people around in a virtual solar system and travel with them to the planets. Puff and Gandalf ran on a mind architecture called Ymir.
