Our Vision

"Avatar technology represents the first real attempt for man to fuse with machine, and not only control it, but enhance ourselves beyond what is naturally possible on both a sensory and cognitive level."

"We believe that a realistic whole-body somatosensory feedback through a machine, in addition to incorporating existing exponential technologies and proprioceptive feedback, will break down existing barriers for the technology and enable this trans-humanist goal.

Our team aims to revolutionise the way in which Avatars perceive their environment, and thus also human perception of themselves through Avatars."

"With our Avatar the controller will be able to see and feel as the Avatar as well as have abilities transcending human capacity, such as smoke and harmful gas detection, radiation, infrared vision, accurate location and orientation amongst others. This enhanced sensory perception will enable the handling of dangerous tasks in harsh environments far more efficiently and safely than a humans can."
