South Korean company,  Hyundai Motor has shared its vision to make space, time and distance irrelevant with the help of its new Metamobility Concept.

Hyundai Motor revealed its mission for pioneering the use of robotics in both the real world and metaverse at CES 2022, one of the most influential tech events in the world, running from Jan. 5-7. The company’s press day event was also live-streamed via Hyundai Motor’s YouTube channel.

In a video Hyundai showed during its CES event, The video picture a young girl and her father exploring Mars in the metaverse using a Boston Dynamics Spot robot that would be physically present on the red planet.

Hyundai Motor's presentation under the main theme of ‘Expanding Human Reach’, reflected how the company’s robotics business will drive the paradigm shift towards future mobility, going beyond the traditional means of transportation to fulfill unlimited freedom of movement for humankind.

The idea is that Spot could map the data and imagery to allow the pair to experience the Martian landscape in real-time. The robot could take measurements, including the wind speed of a sandstorm and the temperature of rock, to allow the replication of those sensory aspects here on Earth.

President and Head of Transportation-as-a-Service (TaaS) Division of Hyundai Motor Group, Chang Song said in a statement"Going one step further from the immersive 'be there' proxy experience that the metaverse provides, robots will become an extension of our own physical senses, allowing us to reshape and enrich our daily lives."

In a press release, Hyundai gave the example of enabling workers to remotely control industrial robots from within the metaverse.
