Well imagine that tweety is sitting on top of your computer now. How about the 101 dalmations running all over your house. Cartoon characters and more ... think of the applications. A computer will scan your view in 3D and render the adjusted size, perspectve, etc.. The display medium can be your eyeglasses or lenses. May be you can wear a brightly coloured dot on your finger, to interact with those characters.

       When I saw the title of this idea I was filled with hope. I thought it was going to be a call to arms directed at the Internet community.   

       "Why are we trying to make the Internet conform to reality with stupid inventions like the DMC Act, and Proprietary Virtual identities?" I imagined the writer of this idea would say... "Why should we censor and make conform something that so easily affords us anonymity and freedom to temporarily become whatever we want?" I pondered the author saying. "I call for VIRTUAL over reality. The Internet should be a wacky uncensored place where we can tell any lie and fabricate any existence we choose! Let everybody else think what they want!" I smiled, and thought to myself, "at last! Exactly what I was thinking!"   

       So I called my supermodel ex-wives around (who until now were only admiring my glistening pectorals and unimaginable wealth from afar,) to show them the idea, clicked on the link and...   

       Oh.   

       Fluffy animals bouncing around the living room. How cute.

       Croissant for [sdm]'s "VIRTUAL over reality", fishbone for this idea. Sorry, I just think the place... ok, I'm thinking mainly of my room, but places in general are far too crowded with physical things to add the confusion of dodgy interactive non-things. Cute idea, yes, but I predict nothing but frustration if it gets off the ground.

       sdm, after you're done making love with those s-m-e-w's of yours on your yacht, post your version with any modifications you and you s-m-e-w's can think of. I have croissabts baking in the oven.

       What was that movie with arnold Schwarzenegger in it? the sixth day? Arnold's friend has sonething a lot like this but it's projected in his room somehow so that anyone can see it. His interpretation is exactly how I forsee this idea being used in the future: as a virtual girlfriend for all the losers who can't seem to find a real one.

       hmm isn't the effect the same as 'readily' available hallucinogenics?

       Blinky Watts is not blind. He suffers from Bozeman's Simplex. He actually sees 25.62 times as much as we do. If we were to see what Blinky is seeing right now, it would look something like this.
