In 2050, remote working and telecommuting are finally legalized in most professions, even emergency paramedics (yes, this job still cannot be assigned to AI). When the call comes, the doctor puts on a set of VR glasses and gloves, and inhabits a robot avatar. The doctor sees with robot eyes and controls manipulators, even feeling their resistance, making it possible to remotely massage a patient’s heart. Robot avatars are dotted throughout the city where fire hydrants and medical kits are located today. Such avatars are used in any emergency. In autonomous mode, they are great at extinguishing fires. They don’t work as cleaners, since there are still cheaper options for that.
Only authorized people can take control of avatars to prevent maniacs from unleashing hell. Yet contract killings with the help of avatars do occur from time to time. Most of them go unsolved.
