Forbes | Society 5.0 Town Turns Heads At Japan’s CEATEC Tech Show

by | Nov 28, 2019 | Media, Telepresence

At the recent Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) outside Tokyo, telepresence robots equipped with displays showing their remote users were turning heads on the show floor.

Developed by OhmniLabs and ANA HOLDINGS INC., the parent company of All Nippon Airways, the newme Avatar telepresence robots are up to 150 cm tall and roll around on a wheeled base at speeds up to 2.9 kph. 

“The idea behind this is that you don’t need to teleport your body, just your consciousness,” says Akira Fukabori, director of ANA HOLDINGS INC.’s Avatar Division. “If you have a physical limitation, you can just teleport your consciousness and you have a new body, and you can communicate and expand your abilities. This is the kind of mobility that we want to introduce to the world.”
