What do you know about Faroe Islands? I to this day don't know anything. If you also, be advised: this is a group of 18 Islands (17 of which are inhabited) located in the Northern part of the Atlantic ocean between Scotland and Iceland, are part of the Kingdom of Denmark, but since 1948 are free to decide practically all questions, except defense, justice, police, common currency and foreign policy. And now just recently, the Director of tourism the Faroe Islands Gudrid of Heegaard stated that in connection with the coronavirus, they do not accept visitors (which makes sense), but they have released a huge amount of time to implement the project, which I call «Avatar». This is when one person to control another. Intrigued?
In the video below Mrs. Haugaard says that they have created an app that will help people to enjoy the beauty of the Faroe Islands upon removal. The bottom line is very simple: you install the app, click on the screen to see things that your «avatar». This employee of the travel company Islands, who dons a helmet with a camera, and you are using the on-screen joystick can control it. Available even button «jump», clicking on which you give the command to a real person on the other side of the smartphone jumped.
Agree, a very original idea which was on the surface, but so far none specifically didn't take it. Thus, the country (if you can call it that) made a virtual video tours of the site. But not in the usual form, like Google Maps, and interactive. You decide where to go, where to look and what to do next. In this case, you are not restricted in the maneuvers, which is not possible with Google Maps. A person can go almost anywhere, he doesn't need a road to shoot the panoramic view. So, in essence, we have avatar, which is able to execute any of your commands (within reason, of course). And this concept turned my imagination. And very strong.
Faroe Islands are here. But few of them knows anything.
The Most simple and straightforward application of this concept — is tourism. Imagine that you launch the app, select any point of the globe and activate your «avatar». At this point the person on the other end of the planet puts on a special helmet (or something like that) and begins to broadcast a picture on your smartphone. You available basic control buttons (forward, backward, turn left or right). It's possible that you can give voice commands to your avatar, and in his ear is a earpiece. So it receives commands from the virtual joystick and at the same time hears you. Sounds fantastic, but there is nothing unreal about it, right? These «hats» it would be possible to sell dollars for 50, say. Anyone can buy it and register yourself as your avatar. A $ 50 per hour (or 30 or 100) many would have agreed to connect to such a system. It's almost like , just do not need right and license for taxi. Prospects for truly endless.
Faroe Islands is simply stunning views
But let's not stop there. Such systems can be used in a huge number of fields. For example to overcome . Let's say you are afraid of depths, heights, spiders or something else. Find an avatar, which is not a problem and give him directions in real time to overcome our phobia. Agree to touch the spider or look at how the touch of the spider are completely different things. Being on this side of the screen we feel safe, but have complete control with our text. So it is possible to jump with a parachute, to dive to the bottom of the ocean or a ride on the scariest roller-coaster. Great? And if you go even further and imagine that we have in hand a smartphone and a virtual reality helmet? But if on the side of the avatar camera 360 degrees and we can look in any direction where we wish? It already feels like a step into a whole new world, but technically, us nothing prevents to implement it, right?
what you can bring to your imagination?
We Continue to develop the theme. How about the sphere of adult entertainments? One thing to watch videos on popular sites, but quite another to take direct part in them. The most unimaginable fantasies can be realized with the use of avatars (if they agree of course). The question of the legal regulation, of course, but I am sure that it is handled. You can enter several levels of avatars from normal walking, to extreme or avatar «adult». The question of price. Moreover, this network can connect anyone. The entry threshold — sale «hat». Although it can imagine a business case in which such helmets are free, and avatar just takes a fee for each session, why not?
Finally, let's not dwell in his fantasies. Want to pick a fight with a stranger on the street? Why not. Give team avatar and rushed. It is clear that it will cost more, because you will need at least to pay a fine or serve two weeks in jail, but if paid well, then maybe the performers there? What about any group of shares? 10 people collect their avatars and organize some events. From fan fighting to the overlap of the streets. In life very few people willing to go against the law, and here for a small (relatively) money can find the avatar from a third world country and make something that never will come to do yourself at home.
I Think by this point you have in mind have appeared a lot of various ideas on how you can use avatars. I have them too, but not all can write on the pages of our website. Let's fantasize together in the comments or in , I'm sure — it will be very exciting.
