Hidetoshi Yokoyama, the president of Robot Consulting Co., Ltd. (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo. President: Hidetoshi Yokoyama. Hereinafter “Robot Consulting”), and Yasushi Funakoshi, the CEO of HIKKY Co., Ltd. (Head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. CEO: Yasushi Funakoshi. Hereinafter “HIKKY”), discussed the fusion of the metaverse and the real world.
In the conversation, Yokoyama and Funakoshi, who are at the forefront of the metaverse, shared views about the penetration of the metaverse and the importance of Vket, the future where the boundaries between digital and real become blurred, and the new economic sphere that will be created in the metaverse.
Funakoshi pointed out that the spread of VR and the metaverse are interconnected, and held the event “Vket Real” stating that in order to spread the metaverse, not only technological progress but also real events are necessary.
The real event was held based on the idea that if people can enjoy wearing VR, there is a possibility that people can enjoy it even if they don’t wear it, and as a result, it was a great success, attracting visitors of all ages and genders, including foreign tourists.
Yokoyama expressed his view that the ideal world would be a world where the boundaries between digital, metaverse, and real life would disappear, and that the rise of romance and idol culture within the metaverse is encouraging the birth of new economic spheres and communities.
He also mentioned that the avatars in the metaverse can be mass-produced by changing their contents to AI BOTs, and that if this becomes possible, the metaverse will become a utopia.

Robot Consulting’s service “Robot Lawyer”, which was mentioned in the dialogue, is currently under development for launch.
“Robot Lawyer” is an AI service that allows users to consult about laws of the metaverse, supervised by a law firm with expertise in the laws of the metaverse.
