Change Makers: Become a leader in tech with the ANA Avatar XPRIZE
Change Makers: Become a leader in tech with the ANA Avatar XPRIZE
The ANA Avatar XPRIZE is an audacious alternative that could bypass the barriers of travel to more rapidly and efficiently distribute skills and hands-on expertise to geographic locations where and when they are needed, bridging the gap between distance, time and cultures.

The $10M ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a four-year global competition focused on accelerating the integration of several emerging and exponential technologies into a multipurpose Avatar system that will enable us to see, hear, touch, and interact with physical environments and other people through a robotic device.

o The winning team will combine state-of-the-art technologies such as robotics, VR, sensors, haptics, and brain-machine interface to demonstrate an Avatar system that allows a person to interact with a remote physical environment in a way that is as close as possible to the experience of being present in that environment.

o Avatars must demonstrate the ability to execute tasks across a variety of real-world scenarios. In the future, Avatar applications could include critical care for the elderly, unsafe scenarios and emergency response, stretching the boundaries of what is possible, and maximizing the impact of knowledge-sharing.
