The 26-minute long report on Friday is the second part on the topic “Homo Digitalis” and will answer, together with Illusion Walk, the question: “Will we become gods on the holodeck?”. We are definitely excited and hope that you will enjoy it!
The ARTE-infotainment show “Xenius” covers topics from everyday life, natural science and social sciences as well as as research news – Thursday and Friday is the main focus on the connection of humans and technology.
This is what “Xenius” says about the upcoming report themselves: “In artificial worlds, we are almost almighty: We can fly, beam ourselves somewhere, fight with extraterrestrials, sneak into other bodies, cure phobias or learn faster. The artificial worlds of virtual reality and augmented reality promise to fulfill our boldest dreams – so realistic that it will change human life even more than computers or smartphones. Is that true? […] In order to figure this out, “Xenius” started an expedition on the holodeck.”
