avatarin was established as a spin-out of ANA Holdings Inc. on April 1st, 2020 with the mission to expand humanity’s potential by offering new abilities through avatars. Our ultimate aim is to establish a next-generation global mobility infrastructure to help solve the world’s remaining challenges.
avatarin is focused on the following two areas to help connect people around the world using remote-controlled robotic avatars, which will enable the teleportation of human skills and presence to remote locations.
- 1）avatarin is developing an avatar robot called newme which will be easily accessible to everyone. People will be able to easily connect to remote, real-world locations to communicate and collaborate using these avatars.
- 2）avatarin is creating a robotic avatar infrastructure which will enable people to connect with each other and overcome the barriers of distance and physical constraints to support one another in both daily life and in emergency scenarios.
What is an avatar?
Our concept of an avatar is a remote-controlled robot dedicated to solving issues facing society. By combining exponential technologies such as robotics, AI, VR, and telecommunications, these robots can be controlled via the internet to transmit the consciousness, skills, and presence of an operator to distant locations in real time. We believe that avatars will redefine mobility and give humanity a new tool to connect, communicate, and collaborate.
