Some computers are even small enough to fit in clothing, jewellery, or even beneath the skin. These are interfaced with a user’s senses and body parts, allowing interaction and control of its functions via an Augmented Reality system- projecting a digital event of object into the user’s physical senses. This allows a computer to display information to a user through glasses, contact lenses, or even implants in the eyes, with similar accoutrements for other senses.
Virtual Reality has overtaken all other formats of computer game, allowing anyone to truly life the life of another, taking part in all manner of outlandish occupations. Though obsessive gamers are still looked down on, most people use VR to some extent, even if its to relax on a virtual island resort after a hectic business meeting, or play sports you don’t have the equipment or facilities to enjoy. Advanced muscular stimulation and feedback means activity in VR still yields the rewards that regular exercise of a similar nature would give.
Cars are still cars, though they run on a number of alternate fuel sources. They don’t go particularly faster, but they do more miles to a gallon, and the internal features are much more advanced- self-driving satnav, video systems and surround sound, even sleeping couches in normal cars.
The internet is larger than ever, available at any point on the planet, able to transmit terabytes of information almost instantly and, via the ubiquitous personal computers, correspond with any willing person you have the address off. Most data based purchases, such as movies and music, are made online, as although most are available free from pirate networks, it has become common courtesy to honour the artists and actors by paying them for their good work. Sales of physical form versions still exist, however, rather than a computer disc, they take the form of crystal cubes, laced with dots and lines, allow for much higher density and more durable data storage.
