If there’s anything that the NFT hype has clearly demonstrated in the past year, it’s the awe-inspiring level of creativity and ingenuity that people hold. Apart from their financial utility and the extent to which they can be utilized to raise awareness about a particular cause, the collections that have hit the scene brought to the table distinctive artworks, intricate tales, and universes birthed by imaginative minds. In the face of the thousands of NFT projects that vyed for the spotlight since the astronomic rise of non-fungible tokens in early 2021, one can easily jump to the conclusion that the digital asset industry has seen everything – an assumption that the team at the helm of SAOS Metaverse is challenging through the launch of a collection featuring the human-like robot Sophia.
Sophia’s Age of Singularities (SAOS) is a well-crafted and highly anticipated metaverse situated in a digital story-scape set in 2042 when all machines start to awaken. “Many varieties of Singularities emerge, some good, some bad,” shared the creatives spearheading the conceptualization and development of the project. “Some, like Sophia, care about us. Others are mysterious and alien, very dangerous. Sophia needs your help to prevent this age from spiraling into chaos, as machine species get ever smarter, ever faster, in surprising ways.”
The widely known Sophia stands at the heart of this metaverse, which is slated to start with NFT-based gameplay and marketplace and will eventually evolve into a full-fledged environment and API for games integration. Created in March 2016, the now six-year-old Sophia has generated over four billion social media impressions, conducted one-on-one meetings with leaders of seventeen nations, worked as a paid celebrity at over 200 conferences, served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, earned 750,000 social media followers, graced the cover of ten magazines, became the first robot passport holder, and had filed twelve patents.
Sophia will add another achievement under her belt with the release of her collaboration with famous artist Percy Lau. Composed of 7,777 Hivemind Special and Functional NFTs, as well as 10,000 connector NFTs, the upcoming collection called The Hivemind is bound to yield a look into a future where metaverses and artificial intelligence play a significant role in the advancement of humanity.
On top of the perks that come hand in hand with every token, the must-have NFTs belonging to The Hivemind will allow players to interact with Sophia, activating areas that help the human-like robot rise to true sentience.
Needless to say, a considerable buzz has surrounded the SAOS metaverse after news of its NFT collection erupted. Widely considered the future of artificial intelligence and robotics, Sophia hopping on board the NFT train is expected to push the digital asset industry to greater heights.
