Designing avatars for


We see the potential for avatars to take on many different forms and be used in numerous scenarios. For example: 

Providing Care

Avatars could give the experience of your presence and care to anyone instantly, regardless of distance. 

Disaster Relief

Avatars could transport critical life-saving skills in real-time to remote, disaster-struck areas where it is too dangerous for humans to go. 

Multipurpose Utility

Experts can utilize avatars to provide unique services or rare trade skills for critical maintenance or repairs.

The ANA Avatar XPRIZE can enable the creation of an audacious alternative that could bypass physical human limitations, allowing us to more rapidly and efficiently distribute skills and hands-on expertise to distant geographic locations where they are needed, bridging the gap between distance, time and cultures.
