Wonders.ai Is Bridging the Gap Between The Digital World and Reality By Bringing Virtual Characters to Life
Imagine interacting with a virtual character from an anime series in real life, being able to connect with them on an interpersonal level, get to know their personality, emotions, and preferences. It almost sounds like a childhood dream come true, only it’s a very real reality thanks to Wonders.ai and the power of AI technology. Leveling up on the realistic interactivity, Wonders.ai, an AI/AR-focused tech company, is on a mission to create multiple platforms where people can live their everyday life alongside their favorite virtual characters. The innovative company is currently focusing on developing a technology platform that can bring one’s favorite virtual characters straight to their smartphone.
Wonder X, a virtual character adventure game created to give users the ability to interact with a full scale life sized virtual character, came to fruition just before Lin and his team’s current passion platform. Wonders.ai, founded in March of 2019, is the next step in creating the user virtual companion platform they are working towards daily. However, Wonderverse is the platform that will give life to the ability of living alongside a virtual companion, perhaps a character you have grown up receiving entertainment from. Lin grew up playing video games and anime, and like most kids his age, he would fantasize about what it would be like if the characters in his game were real. When he founded Wonders.ai he wanted to utilize cutting edge technology to create a multicomponent platform that could bring these well-loved characters to this dimension. During his masters at the University of Cambridge, he proposed merging a virtual component and real-world content as his end of year project. This would have been made possible using virtual reality headsets if any of the instructors or students could envision his dream. Instead of imagining the lives changed by this new technology, it was shut down and labelled “ridiculous.” Undeterred, Michael Lin went on to help create wonderverse where players can live alongside right next to their favourite virtual character. Inside the wonderverse platform, all virtual characters become the AI companions to the users, “I prefer to build the future than to actually predict it, and I was right,” says Lin.
The technical definition of an AI companion is any IP, cartoon character, avatar, or anime character, with a personality, feelings, behavior, storyline, and preferences, that has the ability to interact with the user in real time. When you combine the virtual character with artificial intelligence and augmented reality you release the advanced capabilities of your virtual companion, anywhere at any time. These characters can converse, chat, and speak with their own unique voices and personas. They can share real-life physical interactions in AR and share lifestyles with users. They can form relationships, socialize, and even display human emotions with users. Seeing the potential of this technology, wonders.ai decided to collaborate with and first implement the technology in the vTubing market. Dreaming of the day when people can finally have a personal interaction with virtual characters they love, Wonders.ai, partnered with Phase-Connect, one of the biggest vTubing agencies in North America. Together they plan to take people one big step closer to the goal of “bringing virtual reality and characters to life.” For the first time, they are breaking the traditional barrier of talking through a chatroom and fans are sharing the same space as their most loved personality.
This is only the beginning of the Wonders.ai future of user-companion interactivity and with daily innovation you can expect revolutionary gifts from their team of creators. As a user you’ll soon find interactions to be as simple as opening your mobile device or walking out of your bedroom to live alongside a genuine persona, no scripts, no pre-planning, just top of the line AI tech driven conversations. Wonderverse will create the new standard of AI technology, proving what is possible when you align a vision with persistence and passion.
“Our love for virtual characters inspires our work. Everyone in the company grew up with games, comics, and novels where they all had their own favorite character they wanted to bring to life. They strive to do that very thing daily with the goal in mind that these characters bring lifestyle value to the users, not just superficial conversation.” To learn more about Wonders.ai and keep up with their pioneering productions, visit https://wonders.ai/
