Project Plateau shows that the difference between digital and real is disappearing...
About Project PLATEAU by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism
It seems to be only outdoors now, but inside the building, only some of the stations and other facilities are in progress (details unknown).
I think it would be interesting to see a platform concept like this, where the project as a data infrastructure is considered to include data on "humans" in the field and furthermore, in the building.
Seamlessly linking the outdoors with the inside of buildings. There have been various studies in this area (indoor positioning, Wi-Fi surveying, and linking outdoor, urban, and indoor spaces through this).
Data standardization and international standards are also needed for platforming.
The outdoor is progressing... Is it the same standard?
What about indoor/indoor data...
Perhaps indoor may be a future move, including international standardization, so there may be a chance.
Perhaps some kind of standard will be set so that data can be linked between real estate companies, and 3D indoor data will become a business.
(It may have become a part of the business).
It may be a dream to create an indoor data infrastructure platform and to develop the core technology for such a platform.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) has many problems related to "houses," such as measures for vacant houses, so there may be room for an indoor 3D data platform.
In addition, it is also necessary to consider data on people in particular.
Even if we create indoor data, we need to include people at the end. For now, there is no problem with polygons with zero reality, but to a certain degree, the person itself is not an avatar, but it is integrated with the digital world and enters the digital space.
The boundary between digital and reality is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish.
In such a future, it will become increasingly difficult to understand the boundary between the digital and the real, and this will make it possible to use personal body shape data scanning in such away. It will be possible to live in reality in a digital space. It will become clear that it will be possible to see how the body shape data will be used, such as how the stomach will be held in such a small space.
However, there is also the issue of privacy.
We will have to sort out these issues and standardize the production process.
If this happens, then........
Of course, it would be better to enter the field of indoor data now, but I think it would be better to put people in the digital space at the end of the process (I don't want to do anything difficult), and then use 3D technology to put real people in the digital space. Clothing, etc. would be different depending on the day. If such a system could be developed, there would be considered commercial opportunities.
It is a story in which the boundary between reality and the digital world seems to disappear (what is the difference between going out in a digital space and actually going to a place, since the person himself/herself is visiting a digital world with ultra-high-precision 3D data, both outdoors and indoors). I am sure that it will be realized in the not-so-distant future.
It was a bit of a pipe dream.
