Hyper real

The video in my last post feels sedate to me because I live in that future… I think I now know how the viewers of the time may have felt watching it.. I’ve just come across this and it scares me.

Augmented (hyper)Reality: Domestic Robocop from Keiichi Matsuda on Vimeo.

  1. Very Transhuman. Yes, scary how invasive that technology could be, how dependant people could become on AR and how much a person’s perception of reality could be controlled externally by it. popular tropes in that style of SF

    As for the second vid, imagine that tech applied to humans. “Oh, just nipping down to the Body Shop for a pair of high-heeled feet”
