The Avatar G1 project is the design and implementation effort towards a first-generation avatar-operator system with turn-key usability, human-like performance, industrial reliability, and standard commercial availability.
Avatars are a key step on the world technology tree that significantly improves the safety, convenience, and efficiency of on-site/off-site operations. Avatars are highly versatile. They can save tremendous amounts of time, improve task consistency, and offer super-human capabilities across broad commercial and consumer applications. Avatar technology is the key to cost-effective A-Z automation of common tasks such as dishwashing and laundry. Piloted operation is the key to quickly training useful autonomous AI. Avatars are also especially suited for dangerous and long-distance activities that normally incur significant human risk and commute time.
As costs decrease, wireless connectivity improves (range/latency/bandwidth), and batteries endure longer, we expect that avatars will populate and integrate into the modern landscape (urban to rural), exciting a new era of work and play.
