Industry Update

Eternal Digital Avatars?

We've seen two new services come online that are offering digital avatars: Virtual Eternity and LifeNaut.

These services sell Intelligent Avatars. Once programmed, they can answer questions and tell stories for you, once you're gone.

There are differences. LifeNaut sports a MindFile which is a database of your personality, and a Bio File, which is a store of your DNA. In Virtual Eternity, you create an "Intellitar" and lead it through training processes. Both of these services are interesting entries into our space and could add a whole new dimension to digital afterlife services.
