ANA HOLDINGS INC. (hereinafter “ANA HD”) and the robotic avatar service platform avatarin, Inc., is excited to announce that the beta version of its “newme” avatar service will be offered at Japan Pavilion, Expo 2020 Dubai.
This will be the first time the “newme” avatar will be used outside Japan, making its public debut at the global forum. The theme for the Dubai Expo is “Where ideas meet” and the Japan Pavilion is focused on bringing together technology, people, and ideas.
The newme service will primarily be for Japan-based viewers to experience the various scenes from the Japan Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. This global telepresence experience will help participants from Japan connect through “newme” on their computers and personal devices.
“This is an exciting opportunity to showcase avatarin before a global audience and demonstrate the experience and functionality,” said Akira Fukabori, CEO of avatarin. “The newme avatar will allow individuals to virtually experience the Japanese Pavilion and our hope is that after the Dubai Expo, ‘newme’ and other emerging technologies from avatarin will continue to be utilized at events and garner participation and attention across the globe.”
ANA HD continues to innovate and embrace new technologies to better serve the communities in which it operates.
