Press Review: The first robot avatar for the metaverse from Italy

Italy has made the world’s first robot avatar for the metaverse. It is the evolution of iCub, the humanoid robot built at the Italian Institute of Technology (Iit), is called iCub3 and debuted in a remote tourism test, in a tele-existence experiment at a distance of 300 kilometers, from laboratories of the IIT in Genoa in Pavilion 17 of the Architecture exhibition of the Venice Biennale.

Through iCub3, the operator was able to see the exhibited works in an immersive way, move and interact with people without moving from the laboratory in Genoa, 300 kilometers away thanks to a suit worn by the operator. This suit is called ‘iFeel’ and allows both to trace the operator’s movements to transmit them to the robot, and to receive tactile sensations when and where the robot is touched.

The experiment was carried out in collaboration with the Italian Pavilion ‘Comunità Resilienti’, promoted by the Ministry of Culture and curated by the architect Alessandro Melis.
