Start-up wants to remote control humans
At first glance - and even second or third or fourth - Omnipresenz sounds like it belongs in a sci-fi movie, not on a crowdfunding site.
The Spanish start-up, quickly dubbed "The Sims for real life" by many a skeptical media outlet, claims to be working toward a world in which experiencing life in Barcelona or Seoul or Timbuktu is as easy as going online and hooking up with a human "avatar".
But to get to that rosy-eyed point - to "begin to feel that we are one," as Omnipresenz's marketing puts it - Omnipresenz will need to raise �33,000, or about NZ$52,535, on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
