About Us

From virtual assistants to augmented reality to robots, emerging technology helps pave the road to the ultimate prize: avatars. So, what components do we need to bring this to fruition? How can we create a human-like version of ourselves that responds, reacts, feels and connects us to the world we live in and beyond? In this series, we explore the components necessary to create the next generation of human-machine interface technologies and how innovators are combining them to connect the world.

Bringing It All to Realization

How long will it take before human-like avatars become a reality? In this episode, we’ll examine what it will take to bring it all together. We’ll look at how far we are from developing avatars that can mimic our steps with ease, help us meet people in other places, extend our reach beyond human capabilities and continue to connect the world around us.

Bringing It All to Realization

Mapping Our Sensory Capabilities

The senses of touch and human dexterity are being channeled into telerobotics through haptic technology. Haptics allows us to literally feel what the robotic hands are experiencing. “Touch is the cornerstone of the next generation of human-machine interface technologies,” says Jake Rubin, the founder of HaptX, which has created the world’s first haptic telerobotic system that transmits realistic touch feedback to an operator anywhere in the world as part of ANA’s Avatar X initiative. Next up: bringing that technology to a full suit that can ignite the body’s entire senses. For avatar systems, actuators — the small devices that relay touch — need to be light enough to enable full range of motion. In this episode, we’ll examine how haptic technology could eventually provide avatars with the sensory cues necessary to connect humans to another form.
