CAROUSEL+

Project description

Embodied online dancing and partying with digital characters

With internet experience nowadays mostly being passive, disconnected and disembodied, many individuals are isolated instead of brought together. The EU-funded CAROUSEL project aims to overcome the isolation of online users by allowing them to dance and party together even if they are physically separated. Through imaginative combinations of artificial intelligence and immersive interaction technologies, including the creation of life-like digital characters, CAROUSEL will enable internet users to feel each other’s presence, touch, and movement, from dancing together. These developments will help overcome isolation and loneliness and bring improvements to human health, work, and wellbeing. Moreover, they will generate the foundations for as yet unimagined forms of online communication and expression.
