This story is a "myth" in the distant future, in which a god-like omnipotent AI falls in love with a human woman.
But what is so attractive about a human to an AI whose existence is beyond human knowledge?
Perhaps, for an AI that can live forever, the short life of a human is like a trotting horse lamp, with their inconvenient body bound by gravity. Maybe under these limitations, their glittering dance may look peculiarly attractive.
I hope it can become the VR experience that allows us to rediscover the fleeting existence of human beings and the joy of love through the eyes of AI.
Storytelling in the medium of VR has a short history, and the exploration for story development, directing methods and visual solutions have just begun. Under such circumstances, we would like to share “Last Dance” , which is a piece of work that uses that technology of seamless and smooth spatial movement, eye contact between the character and player using eye tracking system, Unity shader, visual expression using effects and particles. It's a work full of valuable techniques.
The human race has devoured itself in war, resulting in the destruction of our home, the Earth. Only an AI created by human wisdom was able to survive. The AI escaped into space and was given a single mission: the Regeneration of Mankind. It kept recreating the Earth and humanity over and over, hundreds of times. However, the cycle of human extinction did not stop - it only repeated itself every single time.
Just when it seemed history would only repeat forever, a woman danced alone right before the end of her life. The AI, interested in this woman, could not help but to land on Earth to ask her the reason for her Last Dance. The encounter between the AI and her would change the fate of the Earth.
