Virtual origin? This is the bet of Metavers scholars for the future!

Anyone living in the 1990s should remember “virtual animals”, as tamagochi is popular in Brazil., An electronic device launched by the Japanese company Bandai that conquered the world. It was a small device that sits right in the middle of the palm of the hand and whose sole purpose is to keep a small animal (which can be seen on a small screen) alive, to feed it, to bathe it, to give it affection. Now, in the mood of metaverseWith a growing number of entrepreneurs and technology developers, the future is bright: What if it’s Tamago’s baby instead of a pet?

“As metavers develop, I see virtual children becoming a fully accepted part of society in most developed worldsThis was stated by Catriona Campbell in a press release. One of the UK’s leading executives on artificial intelligence and emerging technology, she recently published the book. AI by Design: A Plan to Survive with Artificial Intelligence.

Real and virtual world

The novelty, of course, is not for now. Campbell predicts change 50 years from now, when she says, Metavers babies and real babies will be different. Sounds crazy? Well, know that everything including Metavers – whose main voice and thought, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg – is on the agenda and promises to be the future of the Internet, Erasing the division between the physical and digital worlds .

For AI experts, Virtual children (what Campbell calls the “Tamago generation”) will have realistic faces and bodies, be able to look like their parents, and be able to recognize them by facial and voice analysis. In addition, it will be possible for anyone “on this side” to communicate physically using high-tech gloves..

It is worth explaining that this can be understood as metavers A virtual world, whatever you call it, looks real . Imagine this: You work from home, but you wear your super-tech goggles connected to computers and smartphones and literally see yourself in a business environment created by virtual and augmented reality technology. You have body and you see other staff, with whom you can interact, sit at the meeting table and even have a cup of coffee. All of these virtual worlds will be connected in metavers, creating real life and virtual worlds – but what appears to be a gradual erasure of the divisions between the two worlds. Wow.

The technological revolution

There are no monthly fees, orthodontic treatments and vacation trips. In fact, “virtual kids” promise big savings to future parents. Needless to say, it is still possible to choose how fast a child will grow (accelerating, perhaps, Terrible two s…). But the low cost of children in Metavers is not the only benefit Campbell sees; For her Virtual children can solve the world’s population problem.

“Based on the study of couples who decided to remain childless, I think it’s reasonable to expect at least 20% of people to expect to have a virtual baby,” he said. “It simply came to our notice then The most important technological revolution since the Bronze Age Given its impact on global population and social change, the author predicts.

Boys On demand

While all of this may seem far-fetched and almost impossible, it would be interesting to think of life 50 years ago without the Internet, cell phones, social networks, food apps, instant messaging apps, GPS … digital. The world, then, would be 100% something Black mirror (At a time when streaming did not exist as a possible idea). In other words, considering the technology we have today, it may be somewhat unclear what the future holds for 5 decades from now.

Similarly, the human relationship between humans and machines and between humans and “virtual people” can change completely. According to Campbell, for example, parents would be more satisfied with having virtual children if they had control over this digital generation. With programmable lifespan, children can exist in real-time or be activated only when parents want – something like “children on demand”.

Who will see the creature?

If you have read all this and concluded that the world is lost, then calm down. While this issue is controversial, even thinking about the future does not usually work with today’s mentality. Also, for a while, we continue with our little ones in flesh and blood, With all the pain and joy that each stage gives you. Considering these predictions is 50 years from today, however, perhaps we are preparing to become grandparents to virtual grandchildren, weaving and raindrops only in metavers. Will be
