Question: Is this female customer service avatar kind of creepy… or super creepy?
That’s what we’re wondering after watching this video of a new customer service hologram avatar that will soon grace some New York City area airports. Yep, creepy, virtual helper lady’s going to float amorphously through the airport now. It’s everything you haven’t been waiting for!
In this video, the new avatar lists all the reasons she’s just great (the underlying implication being that she’s superior to human workers, who require stuff like food and money). And, as The Village Voice pointed out, her reasons are… yep… kinda horrifying:
“I can say what you want, dress the way you want, and be just about anything you want me to be!”
Ugh. I feel gross.
