The beginning of a new paradigm shift for VTubers and virtual characters
At Anime Revolution and AI Matsuri in the fall of 2022, Phase-Connect's VTube "Pipkin Pippa" (@pipkinpippa) appeared at the event and actually interacted with fans.
In the near future, users may be able to interact with VTubers in real time using only their smartphones or tablets, just like the actual interaction that took place at the event.
In the future, when we will be able to react and respond to each other and have more realistic and immersive conversations, it will be more than just "idols you can go see".
Wonders.ai and Phase-Connect are at the beginning of a new paradigm shift for VTubers and virtual characters.
It will revolutionize both sides and may soon break down the barriers of current streaming platforms.
