Epic Games is launching a tool that lowers the barriers to creating digital humans. Be prepared for a wave of photorealistic humans at your service.
First Of All What Are Digital Humans or Digital Humanoids?
Digital humans exist in a virtual world, backed by artificial intelligence to create a range of human emotions. They are basically an avatar capable of doing much more than just being a Fortnite character.
What Are Digital Humans Used For?
There is no limit to what digital humans can do. For example, companies like Uneeq help you create digital brand ambassadors who can help build an emotional connection with clients. And they are designed to do a better job than their human counterparts. In gaming, digital humans are becoming more and more realistic to deliver a life-like experience to gaming enthusiasts.
Uneeq has also launched a Digital Einstein Experience where you can chat with the greatest minds in the world.
Epics Games – Digital Human Creator
Epic Games has launched MetaHuman Creator, a cloud-based app that allows you to create digital humans in less time than it takes to make instant noodles. It allows building photorealistic humans to be more accessible, more efficient, save labour costs, and provide more time for innovators to think about the narratives than replaceable technology manipulation. The cloud-streamed app designed to take real-time digital human creation from weeks or months to less than an hour, without compromising on quality.
How Do You Make Digital People?
The software, which looks similar to The Sims Creator, comes with digital human presets that innovators can build on top of. It works by drawing from an ever-growing library of variants of human appearance and motion, and enabling you to create convincing new characters through intuitive workflows that let you sculpt and craft the result you want. It can also be exported in ready-to-animate file extensions, which can give you a seamless transition to bring your digital human to life. For creators, this tool will be the infrastructure of building digital humans.

How will MetaHuman Creator impact the society? Much like Adobe, we think this tool will become a common skill. More people will be trying to build their own digital humans, which means in the near future, you will see them more often in every setting you can think of that requires human interactions.
This is tool is the start of a new world, where real and virtual humans co-exist. Are you ready for a hybrid human society?
Will Digital Humans Take Over Real Humans?
That is a sci-fi scenario. With most digital humans, you are pretty much in control of how you create and operate digital avatars. They work based on a code or algorithms, and if you can write a code to activate them, you write one to deactivate them, too. However, while digital humans may never steal your jobs (not entirely), they are becoming popular, especially in fashion and marketing. Virtual influencers have amassed millions of followers on popular social media sites, including Instagram. People love them even though they know they are not real. But, again, that doesn’t mean they will take over.
