Bin Laden Avatar Could Preach Forever

“Imagine that jihadist supporters create a detailed avatar of Usama bin Ladin and use his voice and many recordings to animate the avatar for up-close, virtual reality experiences that could be used to preach, convert, recruit and propagate dogma to the media,” warns the report entitled “3-D Cyberspace Spillover: Where Virtual Worlds Get Real.”

 “The bin Laden avatar could preach and issue new fatwas for hundreds of years to come, as the fidelity of his likeness would be entirely believable and animated in new ways to keep him current and fresh. In effect, anyone could become a 3-D virtual immortal and live on in cyberspace forever.”
