NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DatChat (Nasdaq: DATS), announced today that it has launched a series of novel AI-powered pets – called HabyPets – in its Habytat metaverse. The release of the pets marks a significant milestone in Habytat’s mission to bring the metaverse to life in a more accessible and innovative way via AI technology and machine learning.
The initial breeds launching on Habytat include the Shiba Inu, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, and Schnauzer, with plans to introduce additional breeds and cats in the near future. Once adopted, these virtual pets require daily care and training to keep them healthy, growing, and happy.
Underpinned by Habytat’s proprietary AI and machine learning engine, HabyPets grow over time from playful companions to mature adult pets. Similar to real-life pets, these AI pets can be trained by users via a range of behavioral commands, replicating the natural progression of real pets over time. These include, but are not limited to, catching frisbees, playing with toys, engaging in tug of war, and even participating in thrilling races with other pets at the park.
As the AI database expands, the pets' behaviors will too, creating a dynamic experience that evolves and adapts over time. Just like with real pets, Habytat users will assume the role of caretakers for their HabyPets, which will include tasks such as feeding, cleaning up after them, petting, and playing with them. By actively engaging with their pets, users can establish a genuine connection and provide proper care for their virtual companions, fostering a realistic experience within the Habytat metaverse.
“HabyPets are the first in a series of planned product releases designed to create an engaging, fun, and useful customer experience in the Habytat, that we anticipate that this will translate into significant revenue growth from both advertisements and product placements,” stated Darin Myman, CEO of DatChat. “With the growing popularity of digital pets, we believe this presents a tremendous opportunity for our users to be entertained while also utilizing our platform to create unique digital assets for their furry friends. Leveraging AI and cutting-edge technology, we’re bringing the nostalgia of beloved vintage gaming communities such as Tamagotchi and Neopets into 2023.”
