    ANA - Avatar XPRIZE

    Published on Sep 19, 2016

    At its core, transportation is about improving the health and quality of life for people. Our current worldwide transport network becomes less and less able to support the demands of an increasingly interconnected society, limiting the spreading of knowledge, skills and workforce at a global scale. The Avatar Visioneers Team is focused on creating "limitless travel" by teleporting one's consciousness into a physical Avatar body that will enable people to "instantly be in multiple places at once, literally."

    “The human resources needed to solve many of the world’s problems are already abundant. It’s getting them where they are needed, when they are needed that is the real problem. Avatars erase this barrier by enabling humans to take any form and perform any function, instantly.”

    - TEAM AVATAR

    Landscape:

    Although physical distance is a catalyst for diversity and human versatility, it is also a barrier preventing stress-free, uninhibited collaboration, cultural exchange, shared experiences, and democratic utilization of global resources.

    We prize a world where everyone is seamlessly connected and available to one another in which ideas, cultures, and things - both abundant and rare - are perceived as local resources that are globally shared and democratically allocated. This is the new world in which all seven billion people can finally unlock their potential and make their talents available to solve massive challenges as citizens of one global federation.

    Prize Sponsor:

    ANA is Japan’s largest airline, and winner of multiple airline industry customer satisfaction awards. “Offering dreams and experiences to people around the world” is one of ANA’s most powerful corporate mission statements. As ANA expands its global reach, literally connecting billions more people around the world, the employees and management of ANA are excited to pursue innovation and exploration that provides humanity a wider view of the world.
