This year, 2022, has been a very good year for great inventor Andre Gray. But, for those who are familiar with Gray and his many revolutionary inventions that are largely responsible for the digital world being what it is today, this is no surprise. In fact, the world has come to expect these high watermark achievements from Gray with a sort of superhuman frequency that defies even the basic notions of what it means to be a genius. The year 2022 was, in fact, another annus mirabilis (miracle year) for inventor Andre Gray, of which he has had several before. For instance, even though Gray had his first invention, (dot)RPM, in 1982 as a high school student, it was in 1988 when he had what historians now refer to as his first annus mirabilis, when he wrote, produced and uploaded the first song ever on the internet. He also rewrote the computer code for the MIDI extension file in order to make it compatible with the internet. Along with uploading the first song to the internet, Gray simultaneously released inkling– an internet bot infused with artificial intelligence and the voicemail icon, which has now found a permanent home on 15 billion mobile phones and counting. These three inventions released in a single day that sparked the digital big bang revolution would be just the first of several more miracle years for Gray to come. It is important to note that Albert Einstein only had one miracle year.
So what exactly did inventor Andre Gray accomplish this year in order to be bestowed with so many prestigious honors and accolades? The below highlights of his achievements this year more than adequately answers the question.
Always coming up with something mind-blowing in what seems like every few days, Gray coined the phrase ‘GoT: Galaxy of Things’ three years ago and then composed & produced a song by the same name and uploaded it to Youtube on February 14, 2022. Gray, once again, exhibited the expansion of his imagination by issuing a call to action that everything in the galaxy can and should be connected to each other. While this may seem like an impossible task now, even by science fiction standards, the world has learned to never underestimate Gray.
The sole vision of Gray, ANDREMEDA is a futuristic village on Mars, where its citizens are composed of only androids, cyborgs and xenobots. With a maximum population of three hundred citizens, ANDREMEDA will, according to Gray, function as the Silicon Valley of Mars. Though projected to come to fruition by the year 2075, Gray’s idea of a proposed village, and all that it entails, is far more rooted in pragmatism than other plans proposed by Elon Musk, NASA and Jeff Bezos.
Gray coined the phrase ‘Metaverse of Things’on May 31, 2020 and began using it on his Youtube channel. By this phrase,Gray meant that everything in the metaverse will, somehow, be connected to each other.
Firmly believing that the metaverse is the next phase of the internet, Gray wrote and produced the song (and the video) titled ‘Metaverse Killed The Internet Star’. This song is already considered to be the de-facto anthem of the metaverse. This song title is also a play on “Internet Killed The Video Star’, the internet anthem also written and produced by Gray back in 1988.
