MIRAGE Brings Us One Step Closer to Total Recall

bill-swift - August 1, 2012

Remember how futuristic movies from the nineties depicted people fumbling around with wristwatch communicators and talking with people through tiny boxes and microphones? That doesn't seem so surreal or unreal in present day, does it?

I'm sure the writers behind Total Recall thought it was incredibly high-tech to make a movie about memories implantation--and it is. But it seems like technology is bringing us closer to achieving what Rekall has through the MIRAGE Substitutional Reality System.

It's basically a piece of headgear that combines recordings from past performances (it's meant to be used for performance arts) with live presentations that are being performed right in front of the wearer. It'll basically give people a heightened sense of sight and sound while making them unable to identify what's real or what's not anymore.

Sounds a little like what Colin Farrell experienced at Rekall now, doesn't it?
