As part of efforts to lower carbon emissions, some companies and governments conduct research into renewable energy. Nuclear fusion is one of those options. While Tokamak devices are not new, small and commercialized versions of the machine could mean that more individuals and businesses would have access to clean energy.

A Tokamak device is a machine that uses magnets to confine plasma particles. This then leads to fusion (and energy), thus nuclear fusion. There are a large number of Tokamak devices in history. France has been constructing the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), and it will finish in 2025.

This is not the first time that miHoYo donated money to a research institution, and nuclear fusion is not its only interest. Ahmad also noted, miHoYo teamed up with the Shanghai Jiaotong University Ruijin Hospital in 2021. The project focuses on integrating technology with the human brain in order to treat conditions such as depression.

In 2021, miHoYo earned over $1 billion in revenue from Genshin ImpactGenshin Impact is available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices.
