Campbell writes in a new book that concerns about overpopulation will prompt society to accept virtual children. “at present, virtual children seem a little far away, but technological advances in the next 50 years.” it will make virtual children in meta-universe almost indistinguishable from children in the real world. With the development of meta-universe technology, virtual children will become a part of society in most developed countries.
The virtual child will have a lifelike face and body and will be able to recognize and respond to the user’s intentions.
Campbell believes that one day humans will be able to use high-tech gloves that simulate physical contact, which will enable people to feed, play and hug their virtual children like real children.
‘There is a need, ‘she said.’ people can have their own virtual children at a fairly low monthly cost, ‘she said.
Campbell said that thanks to CGI and advanced machine learning technology, virtual children will have a lifelike face and body, and with the help of voice recognition and face tracking technology, virtual children will be able to recognize and respond to their “parents” intentions. Parents can interact with them in a digital environment, such as a park, swimming pool or living room.
“parents” can choose the speed at which virtual children grow, talk to them, and listen to their satisfied “hum” and “giggle”.
