Cybernetic Avatar Society
XR teleconferencing among 3D avatars. I was a little nervous when the president's avatar appeared in front of me, but I moved next to the president in 3D space, handed him a product VR prototype, and asked him to experience it remotely with haptic gloves. We were able to get his go-ahead right away.
Remotely participate in large-scale training event for simulating natural disasters. Using global core network technology, experts from various countries gathered in XR space to discuss matters further, and our products ware operated simultaneously in each country using time synchronization technology. We were very pleased to be able to verify the effectiveness of our products in the event of a disaster.
A sudden notice from a manufacturing plant in Thailand that the production line had been shut down. We attempted to remotely control the manufacturing equipment by hopping on a local avatar robot and found that a part was damaged. The person in charge repaired the equipment remotely, and was able to work remotely with ease without any awkward delay.
I enjoyed lunch with my father, whose physical functions was deteriorating, using an avatar. I remotely controlled the assistive devices to help my dad eat. EEG analysis showed that his understanding had not deteriorated, which was a relief. This is probably thanks to the AI interactive nursing care system my father uses every day.
A teleconference in the company and a remote visit to my son’s school coincided. The avatar for the company meeting was set to autonomous alter-ego mode, the AR was used to check the status of the meeting. For the agenda item I was interested in, I went back into the remote alter-ego mode and made a statement. Don’t tell my son that I slipped out of the class visit during that time!
Petit-XR Mt. Fuji climbing for refreshment. Thanks to a number of 360-degree cameras and haptic sensors installed on the site, which flexibly avoid radio interference and provide wireless access according to the situation, I was able to enjoy a remote experience equivalent to climbing an actual mountain while viewing the beautiful sea of clouds in a live
performance, which refreshed my body and soul.
Our products are popular in Europe and the Middle East, and today we had a remote meeting with a client in Turkey. I didn’t know anything about the Turkish language, culture, and customs, so I was worried if I would be able to communicate with them, but thanks to the simultaneous interpretation system that takes into account each other’s cultures,
we will be able to sign a new contract with the client.
Today, I had a fulfilling day as I was able to handle several roles by myself with ease. Compared to 15 years ago, our county’s birthrate is falling and the population is aging, but thanks to avatar technology, labor productivity has improved. According to a TV show on future technology that I watched after dinner, in another 15 years from now, most of the brain’s functions will be incorporated into AI. It is going to be an amazing world, but it is also going to be a test of human wisdom on how to use these technologies.
