Kutaragi founded Sony’s gaming division in 1993 but is currently CEO of Tokyo-based artificial intelligence startup Ascent Robotics Inc.

According to Kutaragi, staying in the real world is very important, and the metaverse tries to create a pseudo-reality that he sees no point in: “Do you really want to be a polished avatar and not yourself? Essentially, this is no different from anonymous forums..

In the quests of Ascent Robotics Inc. and Kutaragi himself now steps in to seamlessly combine the real world with the digital world in the manner of Star Wars holograms. When such a development will be unveiled is still unknown, although Kutaragi plans to publicly share his plans later this year.

“I’m not going to spend 10-20 years trying to make my dreams come true. I am already 71 years old and there is not much time left.he added.

Tech companies like Apple and Sony Interactive Entertainment are actively developing virtual reality headsets with the Metaverse in mind. But Kutaragi is not a fan of this implementation: “VR headsets isolate you from the real world and I don’t support them. [Они] just annoying”.
