What is an Avatar?

An avatar is a full-size, physical humanoid robot that you control using wearable equipment including a head-mounted display (HMD), control jacket, control gloves, and more. The avatar transports your human senses and physical ability to a remote location in real-time. From the comfort of your home or office, you can see, hear, speak, and physically interact with the remote environment as if you were actually there. Essentially, your avatar is your own artificial "second body".

Why an Avatar?

Imagine...

  • Using your avatar to work from home, eliminating commute time and reducing traffic.
  • Enduring dangerous work through your avatar for complete personal safety.
  • Leveraging your avatar for physically demanding tasks that your primary body would not be able to do or sustain for long.
  • Performing complex or dextrous tasks consistently by receiving sensing/motion/instructive assistance from your avatar.
  • Enhancing your productivity across several worksites with multi-avatar switching.
  • Helping friends, family, and other people in distant areas efficiently by projecting your skills through their avatars.
  • Visiting anywhere in the world instantly with a rented avatar.
  • Gaining useful abilities such as thermal-vision, super-hearing, and more that are integrated into the avatar for always-ready and instant-on performance.
  • Teaching your avatar to independently perform discrete tasks and adapt special behavior, working for you exactly according to your needs in autonomous mode.

How does an Avatar Work?

The avatar is a single robotic assembly that runs on corded or battery power. It has a small-form-factor central computer that controls a series of electric actuators and sensors. Data between the avatar and operator primarily flows through a wireless internet connection. The operator equipment also involves a central computer; it is connected to a hybrid control panel (touchscreen/analog) and the on-body interfaces (ex. control jacket, HMD).

About Us

Knowledge Base

Information drives every thought, decision, and action. In our increasingly complex world where logic and trust are hard to weave confidently, it is easy to be misled by noise, incur unknown risks, and waste valuable resources. Truth is the fundamental solution.
