You know what sucks about real life? It's only from one perspective. Where are the variance in genres? You can only play real life in first person, and we all know too much of one type of genre gets boring. We need variety, and now we can have it. Introducing (a year or so after it was revealed) the Avatar Machine. This is a suit that allows the wearer to view himself in the third person, and the video above shows off its newest iteration. It's like putting yourself in a videogame of the real world.
While the technology is cool, creator (or possibly just video poster) Marc Owens own description of the device hints at how disturbing putting yourself into third person actually is.
Avatar Machine is a wearable system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view themselves as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface. The system potentially allows for a diminished sense of social responsibility, and could lead the user to demonstrate behaviors normally reserved for the gaming environment.
Not the greatest advertisement for the tech, considering ditching social norms and moral behaviors isn't always the best idea. However, I doubt we will all be wearing these any time soon so mass marketability is most likely not the goal.

Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!Lawman Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it.

It blends together so well.Gamemaniac3434 One of my personal favorite pokemon. taterchimp I had a rough night and I hate the fucking Eagles, manNiwannabe Okay, here's one last Fuck, Marry, Kill to determine the truest of waifus.
