The climate crisis is an existential threat that demands our action. This is a complex challenge, but when it comes to mobility, we have a growing population of humans and a transportation industry that is proposing incremental improvements to moving those humans around the world. Ridesharing, more efficient vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and reusable rockets are all solutions with a net result of more vehicles with different emissions and material waste. When we think of transportation, we tend to think of moving a person physically from place to place, but what if we could virtualize transportation similarly to how we have virtualized information?  In this presentation, Gabe Paez, Founder & CEO of The Wild, will explore how the virtualization of transportation through XR is completely changing our expectations around the speed, efficiency, and effectiveness of mobility. We have the opportunity today to meaningfully impact our future life on this planet. We can choose to focus on incremental improvements to the status quo, or we can leap beyond with sustainable solutions that can change the game entirely.
