The Augmented Horror of Hyper-Reality




As we march forward into the brave new world of the future, for many of us the 'helping hand' of technology is becoming more and more of a distraction from actually 'living'. And with new 'augmented reality' devices about to appear on the market from the likes of Microsoft and Magic Leap, a whole new layer of information overload is about to be added.

The short film above, Hyper-Reality, looks at a possible end-point of such interminable distraction, presenting "a provocative and kaleidoscopic new vision of the future, where physical and virtual realities have merged, and the city is saturated in media." It's beautifully executed and terrifyingly realistic.
